"Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors?to a striking extent?still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science."

Wow, now that's what I'm talkin' about!!! Yes, yes, yes.... most of the "research" done today is skewed, especially if done by a medical/pharmacological company. Even researchers at the NIH seem to skew their research/studies by choosiing patients which show what they want to show. No, I can't prove it exactly, but the history of folks on this board say a lot.

 

Good article!!

60 minutes had an interesting segment last night with a scientist who was involved in the human genome project. He indicated to the moderator that you have to do the research first (self-funded) and then the government money may be available for further research. That pretty much said it all.
