  1. Evidence has a way of adapting to fit the motives of the parties controlling the data. Common sense gets lost when the starting point is the desired outcome and everything else follows. That’s what RCTs are all about.

  2. I really love this post, along with the post about praying-therapy — I teach introductory research methods and these are great for discussion.

  3. THANK-YOU, Dr. Healy…. I’m a surviving victim of the pseudoscience lies of the drug racket known as psychiatry…. My worst “symptoms” didn’t occur until AFTER I was on psych drugs, and they’ve mostly disappeared since I stopped the psych drugs over 20 years ago….
    The quack shrinks have done, and continue to do – far more harm than good…. The best 20 years of my life were WASTED by the lies of psychiatry – or as I call it, “21st Century Phrenology with toxic drugs….&, I’m not exactly sure that I do understand what you mean by the phrase “primary care nerves”….????….
