Marieke had a total body scan done

Why an MOT for your car, but not for your body?

One in ten Dutch people has had a preventive health check done. These kinds of medical tests are not without controversy.

What if you turn out to have something really bad? A valid question that you should definitely ask yourself before you start the adventure. Journalist Marieke has had the idea for years that something is not quite right in her body. She wonders:'Can you also think yourself sick? And would I make myself even sicker in the event of a setback, or would I rather use all positive energy full-force?'

Her conclusion:knowledge offers something to hold on to and doubt makes you unsteady. Marieke is going for the body scan, this month you can read what came out of the scan in Santé.

You can order the October issue via the webshop.
