The Mythology Of Science-Based Medicine

I would like to share an excellent article written by Larry Dossey M.D., Rustum Roy Ph.D and Deepak Chopra, that discuss the common misconception about medical treatments. It is unfortunate that in an age of science and critical thinking, most people, even professionals and scientists, cannot objectively evaluate the merits of medical treatments. Instead, people rely on vague impressions, which are easily influenced by marketing, hearsay and emotional/cultural bias. According to the article, the biggest misconception in our society about medicine is that newer and more expensive treatment is always more effective and more “scientific”. However, empirical evidence suggests otherwise. Hence this misconception engenders prejudice against alternative medicine, especially traditional and natural medicine. Below is the link to the article. I will let you read it and decide for yourself.
