A reference to this Sott.net post is the sort of thing I do.
Not original but something I feel compelled to assist in making public.
The areas of inadequate or inappropriate medical procedures are a serious issue. Without allocating blame, it is fairly obvious that the ‘system’ is in dire need of improvement. It’s a typical situation of the ‘tail wagging the dog’.
The patient’s wellbeing is not highest on the priorities, where it should be!
Here is an extract:
Your doctors think they make decisions based on medical evidence.
But they don’t!
In fact, half of medical evidence is hidden from your doctors. And the half that’s hidden is the half that shows drugs don’t work.
The bad news is that drug companies are not policed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the way they should be. A drug should be proven both effective and safe BEFORE it is prescribed to millions of people.
Sadly, that often isn’t the case.
