Half of U.S. doctors often prescribe placebos


www.msnbc.msn.com

LONDON - About half of American doctors in a new survey say they regularly give patients placebo treatments — usually drugs or vitamins that won't really help their condition.

And many of these doctors are not honest with their patients about what they are doing, the survey found.

That contradicts advice from the American Medical Association, which recommends doctors use treatments with the full knowledge of their patients.

Well it's very simple actually, on top of corrupt pharmameutical giants doctors are also very much the problem.

And I guess another question arises.... placebos with side effects?

This article mistakenly calls these pills placebos.
But that is incorrect as during clinical trials placebos are harmless.

Antibiotics for patients that don't need them, thereby weakening the immune system?

Seriously????
