Dr. Timothy Wilt of the Minneapolis Veterans Administration in Minneapolis, who wrote a commentary on the findings in the same journal, said the study gives doctors science-based information to share with patients, who are often influenced by anecdotes.
A lol. And from a VA doctor!
Yeah, it's the patients' fault. It's not that physicians en masse embrace and push dubious protocols because they're an easy avenue to ring the register--resultant patient health and well-being (or lack thereof) be damned.
I mean, hell, all the sanctimonious blather about mammograms was backed by reams of 'science-based information.'
And what does that even mean. . .'science-based?' Wouldn't alchemy be 'science-based?' Voo-doo?
Is it science, or not?
