Link: Nearly all of our medical research is wrong

Nearly all of our medical research is wrong

OT: The vaccine brigade would do well to remember the field has problems…

Don’t expect that cure for cancer soon, the charities should be sued for false advertising.

This is mostly a pharma finding.

Something is rotten in the state of biomedical research. Everyone who works in the field knows this on some level. We applaud presentations by colleagues at conferences, hoping that they will extend the same courtesy to us, but we know in our hearts that the majority or even the vast majority of our research claims are false.

When it came to light that the biotechnology firm Amgen tried to reproduce 53 “landmark” cancer studies and managed to confirm only six, scientists were “shocked.”

Sure they were.
