Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science

The Atlantic has an interesting article by David H. Freedman in its November 2010 issue, "Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science", about John Ioannidis, one of the world’s foremost experts on the credibility of medical research.

Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong. So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? Dr. John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science.
