Trials

I am not activist in this case (lets call it not yet). But I fully agree that it is a disturbing fact.

You know you sometimes see or hear about some research trials, experiments etc. where scientists comes up with some kind of cure or explanation for something(First thing comes in mind might be cancer related research)- great we think, scientists are trying and we are getting smarter!

But you know what - only 5,9% industry sponsored trials are published and 75% of those trials were the ones with positive results.

What it means - it means industries (pharmacy?) allows only "good" trials to get published! Which means that people keep making same mistakes over and over again, because nobody is interested to tell them they are wrong! Because it is not convenient for someone!
