Acupuncture understatement

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

Apparently “research conducted in certain countries was uniformly favorable to acupuncture” (Vickers et al). Russia and China in particular effectively do not publish any negative results about acupuncture. Incredible.

I love this ripe, juicy understatement: “Publication bias is a possible explanation.” YA THINK?!

I’ve added this reference to my acupuncture-for-pain article.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
