New podcast with Dr Lembke on doctor's overprescribing with more deadly consequences than statins...opioids.

One tidbit...more than 50% of doctors are now salaried employees of larger group practices, which have established practice guidelines on what drugs have to be prescribed for what test results, etc. ...and how long to spend with each patient. Some doctors see 40 patients a day...easier to continue to hand out pain relief than seek the cause of pain.
