Was having this discussion couple weeks ago, and couldn't find the article.

They also havn't even figured in the effects of the placebo effect into this either.

This is also a major problem in physics, you just don't get to hear about it.

Here is a new one, and you can check out the negative results website too.

and a lot is dangerous.
There is a huge push by Big Pharma for "science based medicine".
This just means treatments that they hold patents on, or have done a study that supports their interests.

like epinepherine for heart attacks. kills you later.

and even neck immobilization after accidents

This also goes for health food supplements and whole food vitamins.
There is more than a few studies that have changed the apothecarists guesses, and most of it hasn't worked its way down to users yet, because of sales.

only study on echinacea, showed it didn't work, but the dangerous heavy metal zinc did, AFTER you have a cold.

Effects of medical studies showing results better than placebo is still falling.

I've got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments. Or a tiny ad:
What makes you excited about rocket ovens?
