AI reveals huge amounts of fraud in medical research | DW News

New detection tools powered by AI have lifted the lid on what some are calling an epidemic of fraud in medical research and publishing. Last year, the number of papers retracted by research journals topped 10,000 for the first time.

One case involved the chief of a cancer surgery division at Columbia University’s medical center. An investigation found that dozens of his cancer treatment studies contained dubious data and recycled images. Other scandals have hit Harvard on the East Coast and on the West Coast it is Stanford University. A scandal there resulted in the resignation of the president last year.

You can't trust nothing these days! IT's also hard to detect fraud yourself and sometimes you flat out can't with medical research because you would need to have been the one involved with making it to do so. That's why when it comes to research on things I cross reference a lot of forums and even reddit as much as many people here don't like that place because real people's real experiences with various things will tell you a lot more in certain ways than a research paper clinically highlighting observations will, it can also reveal things that haven't been discovered yet that can happen that were previously thought to not be possible.

I have so many times across the internet over the years come across threads where the poster will be experiencing something from something else that they've narrowed down which is very strange but most users will just brush them off. It happens both online and medically when a person is a rare case of something and there may not even be the tools available to look into what is going on and little to go off of current research wise. I'd say research fraud and whatever you want to call that phenomenon the two most damaging phenomenons in medical. I think the main issue is that big medical is also big money and that translates all the way down to the doctors in the office. If they don't know what to do then they don't have time to find out so they just coldly pass the patient on because time is money. It's a complex issue because medical also needs a ton of money to be as advanced as it can be but money and other outside influences are also what is hurting it and patients too.

I know what you mean. I've seen hundreds of real people improving on carnivore diet.

Some examples on YouTube:

  2. Overcoming Chronic Disease: How One Man Transformed His Health with a Simple Diet (19:25)
  3. When Carnivore Alone Isn’t Enough - Struggling with MS, Hashimoto's, and Healing from CIRS (1:03:50)
  4. Dr. Visit: I Only Ate MEAT for 380 Days: Here is what Happened to My Bad Heart (12:05)

Tinfoil hats are so hot right now.

But it's really true.

Even if you find the genuine doctor, what research can they look at and believe it's accurate? When Stanford and Harvard are faking data.

I have a friend who did a (very minor) research study. It's lightweight science funded by a manufacturer (clearly stated) and unlikely to harm anyone, but I happen to know they just made up some of the research because they didn't have time to complete the trials.
