It wasn't too long that someone would run an statistical correlation "showing" that statins are association with cancer. Not a specific cancer mind you. Just cancer.
Would someone please create a federal program to give epidemiologists something constructive to do? Better yet, how about medical journals imposing a ban on running articles that do nothing to generate mechanistically informed hypotheses but everything to run articles that the average reporter can understand once it has been pre-digested by a PR firm by said medical journal?
PR for medical journal ok but PR for new medicines, not ok?
