Retraction Attraction on HealthTrain Express

 

Not much of what I write about is original, rather I hope to select important blogs and select items of interest to my readers for a fresh perspective and change of pace.

Such is today’s topic

RETRACTION WATCH is such a blog written by respected journalists. There are more instances of scientific publishing gone awry, and this site purports to alert us of these happenings.

The Logo stands for :  ‘Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)

I know of no related sites for medical research.

Why write a blog about retractions?

For that answer we must listen to Adam  Marcus and Ivan Oransky and listen to what people are saying about Retraction Watch.

Your physician may have been treating you with misinformation for five years until the deficiency is noted. Perhaps he is still treating you with misinformation….What we need is a watchdog registry as a central reference for disproven health and/or scientific publications.
