Bogus medical reports in the press

Here’s yet another short video from pediatrician Aaron Carroll, this one venting annoyance at misleading or overhyped reports of medical research in the news media.


Incidentally, in this video Dr Carroll mentions belonging to a group of doctors who get together regularly to play board games, including role-playing games. Now keep in mind that Carroll is a pediatrician, a medical researcher, a writer whose work regularly appears in The New York Times, a blogger at The Incidental Economist, a YouTube personality, and a family man with a wife and kids. How in the 19,000 Anthedelian hells does he have time to play games? I’m not just amazed and curious, I’m really pretty annoyed. Does he just not sleep?
