“You gave the mouse a cookie. Naturally, he wanted a glass of milk to go with it. Before long, the mouse was moving in and sharing your Netflix password.” @IshaniG Take on how a medical checkup can snowball into a ‘cascade’ of tests cause more harm than good

Any Pentagon planners participating in targeting of Iranian cultural sites should understand their own responsibility for war crimes. Following orders is not a defense.

In 2019 @CircIntv had 97 original articles. 71% had authors with COI. 35% of articles were funded by industry. Of the 9 open access articles, 8 were done by authors with COI with industry. (My research. Could have mistakes)

Thread. Sept messages importants en santé des femmes. 1. De meilleures méthodes contraceptives sont nécessaires et possibles. 2. Tous les produits d’ “hygiène” vulvovaginale sont des arnaques. 3. Les femmes transgenre sont des femmes. Point final.

Here I share some profound clinical wisdom. When you have trouble making a diagnosis over the phone, it usually helps to see the patient. I hope you were taking notes.

I am totally disappointed with the price increases on more than 200 prescription drugs within 3 days of the New Year. I am calling out @bmsnewsfor hiking price of Revlimid by 6%. I’m calling on experts to call out drugs in their own field.

2020. Clear vision of people hoping for a better future because of what they do now. Working today for a future in which people care for and about each other. #ForCare as a profoundly human development, rooted in justice and solidarity. 2020. Here. We. Come.

Please let 2020 be the year of critical thinking Asking hard questions on evidence , what it tells us and what it doesn’t About who stands to benefit and lose About whether creating unintended harms And whether we are more concerned with our popularity than limiting harms.

Recall that the more information you get, the more disproportionately higher the ratio of noise to signal. Say, a little bit of information, 50% noise; a lot, 99.9% noise. Likewise, in any field, the higher the number of academic publications the higher the ratio of garbage.
