Mammography causes cancer

Which preventive medical check-ups do you recommend? - "Absolutely none!"

Also Jürgen Windeler, head of the German since 2010 Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG), is not exactly a proponent of preventive medical checkups.

IQWiG examines the risk-benefit ratios of drugs and treatment methods in Germany - similar to that Swiss Medical Board in Switzerland.

In an interview with the Berliner Zeitung on December 27, 2013, Windeler said that during early detection examinations "one has to be clear that there are also disadvantages and tangible economic interests."

Regarding preventive medical checkups for children, Windeler said that by calling for further child preventive measures, paediatricians wanted more children to come to the practice.

In addition, the IQWiG director criticizes the campaigns, which are used to make people feel guilty if they do not show up for early detection. Instead, he advocates that prevention should remain the sovereign decision of the individual.

At the end of the interview, Windeler explains that the palpation examination for prostate cancer and the regular skin cancer screening based on scientific criteria are questionable. And when asked which preventive medical check-up he recommends, Windeler replies: "None at all." Because benefit and harm are simply too close together.
