Robert D. Mootz, DC, who is the Medical Director for the State of Washington Department of Labor and Industries also penned an interesting review in JMPT titled “When Evidence and Practice Collide” (FULL TEXT) that sheds a lot of light on EBM issues. Added to this is the complication that, by JAMAs own standards of evaluation, “between 18 and 68 percent of the 264 abstracts evaluated from major medical journals were inaccurate”.

Vaccine Injury Crime: Life on the Line! RE: Pet Vaccinations

"Received all current vaccinations, or boosters, including parvovirus... " and a list of 6 different...types for dogs!!! Parainfluenza? Bordatella? Leptospirosis? They do not even mention RABIES! Hawaii Public Housing Authority Attn: Planning Office 1002 North School Street Honolulu, Hawaii 96817 Dear Ladies, and Sirs, and Executive Director Hakim Quansafi, The proposed changes are vague, will lead to financial abuse of pet owners, and a dangerous precedent affecting the health of pets, and I am totally against the forceful manner in which veterinarians have lobbied to milk me like a cash cow through my public housing.

I experienced 1st hand by my visit to a new vet this month on Maui, with my less then 20lb terrier dog, Teriann, and saw how this works. The vet said he would “tell” the housing I refused to vaccinate/booster my pet, and I was was attacked by 2 vets at once doing this to me too.

How to Lose Weight. 18. Consider weight-loss pills (if desperate) It sounds like a dream. Keep living like you already do, take a daily pill, and effortlessly lose your excess weight.

Corrupción de la Medicina Basada en la Evidencia – noticias de abajo

Jason Fung No es mala la idea en la que se basa la Medicina Basada en la Evidencia (MBE). Pero en la práctica, no lo es tanto. La percepción humana a menudo es defectuosa, por lo que la premisa de la MBE es estudiar aquellos tratamientos médicos en los que se han obtenido algunos éxitos. Consideremos, por ejemplo, el procedimiento de angioplastia. Entonces, ¿por qué destacados médicos han dicho que la MBE resulta en gran medida inútil? “Los argumentos en contra de la Ciencia son sencillos: gran parte de la literatura científica, tal vez la mitad, es simplemente falsa”. La Dra. “Sencillamente, ya no es posible confiar en gran parte de la investigación clínica que se publica, o confiar en el juicio de médicos de confianza o en directrices médicas autorizadas.

Flu Vaccine Efficacy. One weird trick to avoid the ‘flu.

Flu Vaccine Efficacy

I guess I will be spending the rest the flu season writing about the nonsense that is promulgated about the flu vaccine and the disease. One of the more common laments about the flu vaccine is that it doesn’t work: I got the flu vaccine and still got the flu. Well maybe. Maybe not. It takes a few weeks to get protection, so the flu could have developed before the antibody response to the vaccine. My research for good studies on the efficasy [sic] of seasonal flu vaccines so far has left me wondering if I’ve somehow missed the good research. Why some readers think I am a research librarian, I do not know. But the topic for this post concerns the efficacy of the flu vaccine. Why the influenza vaccine kinda sucks. What conclusions has Clinical Evidence drawn about what works, what doesn't based on randomised controlled trial evidence?

At Clinical Evidence (CE) we aim to help people make informed decisions about what treatments to use.

What conclusions has Clinical Evidence drawn about what works, what doesn't based on randomised controlled trial evidence?

So it would be nice to be able to give a clear, confident answer to every clinical question, based on an abundance of high-quality evidence. Of course, we can’t – but we can often highlight where more research is needed. We want to identify treatments that work and for which the benefits outweigh the harms, especially treatments that may be underused. We also wish to highlight treatments that do not work or for which harms outweigh benefits. For the research community, our intention is to highlight gaps in the evidence – where there are no good RCTs or no RCTs that look at groups of people or at important patient outcomes. Clinical Evidence selects around 3000 treatments that have been evaluated in research for analysis and divides their effectiveness for specific indications into categories.

So if it’s so problematic, why categorise? Because our users tell us it’s helpful. Navbar.
