How Calling Lifesaving Medical Treatments "Anecdotal" Keeps Doctors From Being Curious

Posted Sep 14 2008 10:15am

In my previous posting, “Four Lifesaving Medical Treatments: Not So ‘Anecdotal,’ After All,” I described four treatments that doctors routinely call “anecdotal,” but that, in my opinion, don’t deserve this negative label.

Their common elements are impressive:

1) They have all been in existence for many years.

2) All have benefited hundreds, sometimes thousands, of very sick patients with life-threatening illnesses.

3) All have medical practitioners and patient advocates who openly champion them.

4) No one is making large amounts of money from these treatments -- especially when compared to the money that is made from the treatments championed by Big Pharma.
