Travis Saunders selects several notable posts each week from Health and Clinical Research. He blogs at Obesity Panacea.
There were even more great posts that usual this week! These are the ones that caught my eye, but feel free to post your own in the comments.
- “Huge leap forward” is just a small step for cancer research. Stories that are misleading, overhyped and confusing – Cancer Research UK explains where the mainstream media got it wrong this time.
- Knowledge versus certainty in skepticism, medicine, and science. Orac looks at what happens when science challenges our beliefs, as well as the scourge of “scientific impotence”.
- The pill could lower sex drive in young women. Talk about unintended consequences.
- Mobile phones and cancer: study says “no”, news reports say “yes”. Yet more terrifyingly bad journalism discussed at Good, Bad, and Bogus.
See you all next week!
