    I particularly like this quote.

    I have been saying very much the same thing. EBM can be easily biased, its rarely done well, and though the principle is good the execution is currently a fail.

    I would pay money to watch Ioannidis dissect and destroy PACE.

    Fascinating article, Ioannidis sounds really, really 'frustrated' with the current situation.
