Responding to the psychobabble Some exceptional posts on this thread. I would like to see large advocacy groups do more than critically review biomedical research, but also actively combat the "reams of psychobabble" that keep flowing from certain quarters. Put it in their official mandate, hire someone full time to fairly evaluate the research and respond appropriately. It is the year 2010 for heaven's sake, we are sick of seeing the same tired old flaws and poor standards in research over and over after all these years. I would be embarrassed to have my name on any professional paper which can be mauled by lay patients for its dodgy methodology.
