How about the years-long fable of CFS? Learned medical minds for decades tried to have us and the public believe there was valid scientific reasoning that conclusively established it doesn't really exist except in the patients' own delusional mind/psyche.
There's almost no evidence to support the Wessely School view that ME/CFS is caused by the patient's own mind and thoughts. Yet inexplicably, most medical scientists around the world adopted Simon Wessely's theory that ME/CFS is an "all in the mind" condition, even though evidence was completely lacking.
Had those medical scientists taken a hard line and said: "Prof Wessely, where's the evidence for your theory", then we would have never been in this state.
