SA – “This is the world we live in and we have to accept”
No we don’t have to accept; Paul Barbara proves that, though I would argue that rejection becomes more effective the better it is targeted.
– “if we are to succeed in our efforts, to be very diligent in checking the credentials of those we support”
Goldacre’s advice is to check everyone’s data and methods, and be sceptical of interpretations. John Ioannidis is a case in point; his credentials are excellent, but his Stanford study is wrong by an order of magnitude or more.
