Placebo Blog Fest

There is recently a study that has been released about physicians prescribing placebos. After that, a whole bunch of medical bloggers, well, blogged about it. And I have got to say, their readings have been interesting, which is why I am linking in this post articles about placebos. Basically, placebos are, “any health effect measured after an intervention that is something other than a physiological response to a biologically active treatment.”

Other than respectful insolence, which I have linked above, there are others:

Terra Sigilata

Adventures in Ethics and Science

Pure Pedantry

Effect Measure

Denialism Blog

Science Based Medicine

So read up! And let your brain burst from so much information getting in your brain.
