TED Talks Tuesday - Ben Goldacre: What doctor's don't know about the drugs they prescribe.

Ben Goldacre is one of my favorite scientists alive today. He is the autor of one of my favorite books, Bad Science. One reason I admire him so much is his ability to see, and call out, problems in science as quickly as problems in pseudoscience. This TED Talk is just that - he describes publication bias and why it is a problem.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the video.
