Bad Science

quack-doctorThough I am hugely pro-science,  I am only pro-science-method, not pro-accepted-knowledge.   People claiming to practice science are people and thus susceptible to all the foibles abundant among humans and their institutions.  The April 2nd NYT has a good article on how though research shows failures of medical practices, nonetheless practitioners keep pushing  these failures:

  • Cough medicines that don’t work
  • Ear infection antibiotics don’t work
  • Knee and Back surgeries that don’t work

The writer left out that present cholesterol and fat dogma is wrong and yet still taught by most Medical Practitioners !
