Two rights make it so wrong Posted on August 02, 2011, 0 Comments
According to the FDA's stringent process of approval, the number of times a drug fails to prove useful in clinical trials is not important. In fact, a large majority of scientific studies can show a particular drug to be completely ineffective. Yet as long as two or more show "statistical" superiority over a placebo, the drug gets the green light. And here's the scary part: the FDA allows the drug companies to provide its own "research" from "studies" performed by doctors and scientists of their own choosing.
