Agreed! This is why I asked on this list my previous questions regarding
evidence based diagnoses and interpretation in light of medical
databases. I am on a list that prints retractions and the like. I have
had doctors on the internet suggesting they would wait a couple of years
for medication information, etc. and I can understand why they feel that
way. I see a rational, scientific concern over prescribing of drugs that
have just come out.

I'm not sure I see one when it comes to diagnosis. That's the email list
purpose, and the leading cause of lawsuits, anything we can figure out
to help fix that problem will help doctors and patients.

With all due respect, I'm not interested in lining lawyers' pockets. If
any medical professional feels that way here, please speak up. :)
