Debunking Myths and Addressing Controversies in Medicine

Half of what you’ll learn in medical school will be shown to be either 
dead wrong or out of date within five years of your graduation; the trouble is that nobody can tell you which half."  -David Sackett
This website is intended as a forum for discussion regarding controversial issues in medicine and debunking medical dogma that is not supported by evidence.  Through a collaboration among readers, dissemination of information will allow more informed decision-making.  In addition, I hope it will provide exposure to variations in clinical practice, and knowledge and opinions regarding management strategies, in order to improve the practice of medicine for us all.

Note: This site does not attempt to answer the question, "Why did I go to medical school?"

This forum is open to anyone who wishes to contribute.
