88% of medical diagnoses wrong?
Wow!! That’s huge and very scary.
A Mayo Clinic study found that 88% of medical diagnoses are inaccurate or outright wrong. Even with cancer! The National Academy of Medicine reported that about 12 million people in the US, in 2015, were misdiagnosed.
Now, we have to take a few things into consideration: 1) there are over 10,000 diseases For those planning to hit the gym to lose weight, take note. A new study suggests that diet is far more important than physical activity including walking, fidgeting and formal exercise.
The reason is because exercising increases appetite especially with prolonged endurance exercise or with weight lifting that can ultimately sabotage the best of intentions, the CNN reported.
People who lose weight gradually (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off, according to the US Centers for 2) there are about 300 symptoms
3) people do not know how to accurately describe symptoms
4) physicians are human and make mistakes
But why is it that second opinions agree with the first opinion only 12% of the time? Another issue that is of major concern is that the medical coding system was designed for billing purposes, Disease Control and Prevention.
About 10 per cent of our calories are burned digesting not to collect health statistics. There are a huge number of issues with the coding system itself and that may also be a contributing factor. A study at John Hopkins claims that the only reason that medical errors are not more widely recognized as the third leading cause of death in North America is because it is not an option on the tracking devices!!
When they looked at prior research, John Hopkins, the food we eat and roughly 10 per cent to 30 per cent are lost through physical activity, the study said. claims that over 250,000 Americans die each year due to medical errors which comes in third topped only by heart disease and cancer! What do these medical errors include? Issues that range from surgical complications that go unrecognized to mix-ups with does or types of medications prescribed. Again, the National Academy of Medicine reported that misdiagnosis contributes to 10% of patient deaths. “It could not be more true. What you omit from your diet is so much more important than how much you exercise,” nutritionist Lisa Drayer was quoted as saying to CNN.
All of your “calories in” come from the food you eat and the beverages you drink, but only a portion of your “calories out” are lost through exercise, according to Drayer. The average person -- excluding professional athletes -- burns five per cent to 15 per cent of their daily calories through exercise, said Alexxai Kravitz, Investigator at the National Institute of Here’s to your health!

All this is not to say that exercise does not have its place. It is certainly important for building strength and muscle mass and flexibility and can help manage diseases, including heart disease and diabetes. But although exercise can help with weight loss, diet is a much more important lifestyle factor, Drayer noted.
