    This is on mental disorders so not that relevant to ME/CFS.

    But perhaps it might be of interest to the odd person.

    It does raise some interesting points about what gets to be seen as evidence-based.
    For example, if there are more trials of a therapy, the evidence can look stronger for it than for therapies that have been tested less.

    Also the issue of research allegiance where researchers publish research on therapies that are interested in and how therapies do in trials is linked to the allegiances of the investigators.

    So nothing particularly new for a lot of people.

    Interesting to this odd person.

    Particularly the poor score on bias risk from Cochrane. My recent impression is that Cochrane are overgenerous.

    So maybe nothing particularly new, but it helps to shake things down a bit more in the mind!
