Dr. Cohen is one of my heroes. His recent articles about the confounding effects due to the structure of randomized controlled drug trials are brilliant. That the drug companies get to spit out whatever lies they want, but those who criticize them are forced to be scientific and objective is a really lop sided power structure. It is obvious that stopping the drugs abruptly causes withdrawal – surely this was understood by pharma from the beginning. There is a high suicide rate among those who have a ‘drug washout’ before the second limb of the research studies. That Dr. Cohen has taken the time to scientifically debunk the twisted research design is a real step forward.
