Ben Goldacre: What doctors don’t know about the drugs they prescribe


TED presents Ben Goldacre talking about what doctors don’t know about the drugs they prescribe. When a new drug gets tested, the results of the trials should be published for the rest of the medical world — except much of the time, negative or inconclusive findings go unreported, leaving doctors and researchers in the dark. In this impassioned talk, Goldacre explains why these unreported instances of negative data are especially misleading and dangerous.
