Asking for and examining evidence is of the utmost importance in science and medicine.
“Asking for and examining evidence is of the utmost importance in science and medicine. In order for us to know whether a medicine is effective and safe to use, we need to make sure it has been properly tested in a rigorously designed clinical trial. If you don’t ask for evidence that a company can substantiate its scientific claims, you risk being taken in by incorrect statements and wasting your money. Worse still, untested medical treatments can cause real damage to the body, lead to unpleasant side-effects and may delay a patient from receiving the correct medical diagnosis and treatment.”
Prof. Julia Buckingham is the President of the Society for Endocrinology.
