    Default What doctors don't know about the drugs they prescribe

    A great expansion with Ben Goldacre on the problem with published drug trials in medicine:

    When a new drug gets tested, the results of the trials should be published for the rest of the medical world -- except much of the time, negative or inconclusive findings go unreported, leaving doctors and researchers in the dark. In this impassioned talk, Ben Goldacre explains why these unreported instances of negative data are especially misleading and dangerous.
    Incredible stats on this, much more positive bias than I would have guessed.
    "Remember always that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one."
    Eleanor Roosevelt

    "When people see some things as beautiful,
    other things become ugly.
    When people see some things as good,
    other things become bad."

    Thank you for uploading this. I did like the comments on the video.

    It's shocking that these results are omitted at all. The things that TPTB would do in order to sell their product.
