How do you spot if your surgeon's a dud? Did you know that coffee-drinking lessens the risk of sucide? That one third of the 62 different sorts of artificial hip on the market have not been properly tested? That most cases of AIDS in babies are preventable? "Trust me (I'm a doctor)" examines health issues from a consumer's perspective, exposing the myths and reluctance of the medical profession to pass on findings to patients.
