    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.

    other things become bad."
