Where and when did I state this? I don't think I said such a thing.Originally Posted by Elocute
I care about results, not how many scientific papers you've churned out. If this book is a pile of crap, where are all the negative reviews? (see Hillary's Hard Choices, for an example of dog poop)yet this one who hasn't much concurrent scientific research has won you over with 179 reviews on amazon.
That's just from Amazon reviews. You'll find other testimonies on various psoriasis forums, but if you don't care for anecdotal evidence, then you won't find that convincing either.We know two things to be mostly true:
1) People are saying it works (179 results)
The Placebo effect maxes out at around 30%.2) The Placebo effect is strong.
If the only truth you recognize are double blind studies, then I shouldn't have even bothered. See ya.So the chance of people saying something works (especially if it's "natural"), given the placebo effect is quite high. Again, this is the reason for much larger sample sizes and double-blind studies.
