Prevention stats

An interesting, sometimes amusing piece, on whether preventative health care, i.e. testing people who are not showing symptoms, does more good than harm, and whether (a separate question of course) it saves money.

It is an article of faith among a lot of people, including people advocating for "Obamacare," that the answer to both questions is yes. Maybe not.
