Conventional Medical research cannot be believed

The title of this blog is not a personal quote, but from Marcia Angell, MD, a well-known, respected physician, and former editor of a leading Medical Journal. So much for the 'evidence base' of conventional medicine!

          "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".
