Jarrod Shapiro, DPMAn Interesting Find for the Questioning Mind: How to Spot Bad Science

The table below was recently posted on the Internet by the famous evolutionary biologist, public educator, and iconoclast Richard Dawkins. It was originally posted here. I found this graphic highly interesting considering the fact that it is meant to educate the lay public on using "scientific" information obtained on the internet.

What's interesting, you ask?

I'm intrigued that almost all of the errors and pitfalls below are the same ones many of us physicians commit while performing clinical research or interpreting the research literature. Take a look at the graphic below and think about some of the recent podiatric or orthopedic literature you may have read. I think it speaks for itself.

Tonight's Premier Lecture is
Onychomycosis: Scientific Diagnosis and Treatment
Steve A. McClain, MD
