BMJ op-ed: "Evidence based medicine has been corrupted by corporate interests, failed regulation, and commercialisation of academia"
Couldn't have said it any better myself. Here's what one of the commenter's said: "We may be looking at a systemic failure of unknown proportions." You got that right!
The illusion of evidence based medicine, an op-ed published in the BMJ on March 16, 2022, points out that the system is now corrupt and needs major surgery to fix it.
I couldn’t agree more.
What is stunning is the relative silence from the medical community in supporting the suggested reforms. Just 5 comments on the op-ed after 9 days. All supportive of the op-ed. Not a single comment on the op-ed from anyone in the US.
The BMJ does censor comments. But I don’t.
Have a look at the comments below, especially the comment from Mathew Crawford.
