Scientific Evidence

Having been in healthcare since 1981, I have witnessed some amazing changes as to what qualifies as scientific evidence. Our media is flooded with claims, supported by various “studies”, about all sorts of things. Often the studies are not statistically significant, but reported with “authority”. Unfortunately even our “best” medical ones are often fraught with bias and deception. I believe healthcare needs reform starting with pre-medical training with a commitment to excellent patient care. It seems to me our broken healthcare system cannot be fixed without starting at the foundation and rebuilding, actually training a new generation of critically astute physicians less biased by money and special interests.
