Interview: John Santa, Ph.D., director, Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center.



Consumer Reports has been providing fair, unbiased reviews of products and services since 1936. Most recently, Consumer Reports has provided consumers with extensive health and wellness coverage, including ratings of sunscreen and other products, information about the best cardiovascular surgeons and safety ratings of hospitals. The March cover story profiled cancer screenings and found that some tests may be unnecessary, with risks often outweighing the benefits. John Santa, Ph.D., spoke with “Sound Medicine” about their recent health and wellness coverage. Consumer Reports is participating in the “Choosing Wisely” program, which was profiled on last week’s edition of "Sound Medicine."
