Why you can’t trust your doctor’s advice…

NEJM editor: “No longer possible to believe much of clinical research published”

In case you thought it was safe to trust your doctor, or pharmacist, you can’t. Not because they’re dishonest, but because even they can’t trust the research information that they’re being fed about new treatment options. Read this article if you don’t believe me…

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” ~ Dr Marcia Angell
