The placebo effect has mystified physicians, scientists, and patients for centuries. Placebo effects can appear and disappear, like magic.

“improvement in the condition of a patient that occurs in response to treatment but cannot be considered due to the specific treatment used” Continue reading “Debunking The Placebo Effect: Placebo Magic Tricks Explained” »
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but an incurable disease is being cured. I went over to my local library last fall, to do some research on diabetes. It was an interesting experience.

But that’s not it either. Continue reading “Malnutrition Epidemic in America” »
