How Can We Understand Contradictory Research?

Dr. Ben Goldacre gave a funny and, I think, important talk on Ted called Battling Bad Science. It's about 14 minutes long.

What you'll get from watching it is a much more balanced way to respond to the contradictory information we get about what we should do, eat, avoid, etc., in order to stay healthy.

You'll also learn about some of the tricky things pharmaceutical companies do in how they design their clinical trials. And what they leave out.

Useful, right?
