I’d rather help doctors and nurses than soldiers.

“Nel 2021 le guerre nel mondo erano 46, ora siamo già a 56. A noi arriva l’eco solo dei più vicini o più gravi: cioè quando ci sono almeno 10.000 decessi” così @PirousFateh ora in onda al microfono di @robertafulci “ La prima vittima della guerra è la verità: avere dati affidabili diventa sempre più difficile, ma aumentano disuguaglianze, i danni e le vittime sono sempre sottostimate, aumentano i problemi di salute mentale, e così via”

“You have to worry how much fraud you’d find if everybody provided all the raw data. I suspect you’d find a gargantuan amount of fraud. This is merely the tip of the iceberg.” @VPrasadMDMPH weighs in as a top cancer surgeon’s research is under scrutiny.

In just over four months in #Gaza, there have been more #children, more journalists, more medical personnel, and more @UN staff killed than anywhere in the world during a conflict. It is with profound regret that I must now inform you that @UNRWA has reached a breaking point, with Israel’s repeated calls to dismantle it and the freezing of funding by donors at a time of unprecedented humanitarian needs in Gaza.

Avete mai sentito in un pronto soccorso: “presto, un omeopata!”? Beh, meno male. Buon sabato a tutti!

Might we define health in the same way that we have defined disease – through a series of cases. The answer to the question “What is health?”may lie in minute particulars. We might build up textbooks of health to match our textbooks of disease.

Over 1 billion people living with obesity in the world today: and no country has an effective plan of action.

Inheritance will increase inequalities. A challenge to equity across the generations.

“Our findings indicate that communicating uncertainty buffers against a loss of trust when evidence changes. Moreover, explaining uncertainty does not appear to harm trust.”

In some labs, the culture fosters a dynamic where students who produce desired results are favoured, regardless of quality of the work or even research integrity

@cshperspectives | Richard Sever | 3.03.2024

Want a simple rule? Does the lab judge its success by where it publishes? Does it consider a Science, Cell or Nature paper to be the highest accomplishment? If so, it’s not serious about doing science right. You should join a lab that’s fighting the system, not playing in it.

A major new announcement: Mandatory data and code sharing for research published by The BMJ

@KamranAbbasi | Kamran Abbasi | 5.03.2024

We have been shouting about this forever and a day (see reference 1 in this editorial...) alongside many others. Bravo BMJ! This is magnificent to see, I look forward to it being magnificent in practice!

@bengoldacre | Ben Goldacre | 5.03.2024

Ugh. The @US_FDA decided to allow yogurt to label itself “effective” in fighting type 2 diabetes This is based only on “limited evidence,” which means: v. weak observational studies only. No cause-and-effect data. So why approve, FDA?

@bigfatsurprise | Nina Teicholz | 6.03.2024

The fact that you just found out that something was happening doesn’t make it a “secret.”

@JamesSurowiecki | James Surowiecki | 6.03.2024

What I could not see at first, and had to learn through practice, observing, listening and new forms of measurement, was that relationships are the element that matters, the foundation of a new system, the new framework within which we must create.

@Richard56 | Richard Smith | 7.03.2024

Not a fan of people passing off AI peer reviews as their own, but do think there could be value in authors routinely using tailored AI for pre-submission critique/sense check (and for accompanying code). Especially with the increasing focus on pre-prints in biomedical science….

Every year more than 20,000 pregnancies in the U.S. result in a stillbirth, but not all of these tragedies were inevitable. As many as one in four stillbirths are potentially preventable.

Seven IND firms that failed drug quality test gave $$ to IND political parties thru electoral bonds: Drug regulatn is just one area where the pharmaceutical industry seeks concessions from governments, say experts.

Nel centenario di Basaglia.

Trial in Norvegia dove medici e staff di ospedali psichiatrici avevano dubbi sulla sicurezza propria e dei pazienti in cura volontaria a “porte aperte” (come da linee-guida). Pensavano che questa richiedesse più “misure coercitive”, invece no.

How will we get to ‘new therapies’ for Parkinson’s? Newsflash: We don’t understand the critical steps at play in Parkinson’s. We need hard work and not handwaving about the degenerative process, so how about we get busy explaining Step 2: ‘then a miracle occurs.’ My thought to start the week and wishing everyone great inspiration and creativity in their quests.

Dopo le classi differenziate, le classi destinate solo agli stranieri, Galli della Loggia se la prende con la liberalizzazione delle Università che, dal 1969, sono state aperte a tutti i diplomati. Che roba scandalosa, vero? Tutti i diplomati e non solo pochi, magari ricchi.
