Sebastian Rushworth is a physician from Sweden, and a proponent of evidence based medicine. He thinks that medical diagnosis and treatment should be guided by the scientific evidence, not by expert opinion, personal anecdote or by salespeople working for pharmaceutical companies.
His most recent blog post is again very interesting. The honesty with which dr. Rushworth evaluates pharmaceutical medicines commonly used in Industrial Medicine and the way he rigorously discusses their benefits and harms is an example that the traditional Chinese medicine profession should heed.
As well as anybody involved in decision making about pharmaceutical drugs, either as a doctor or a patient, they should read it, too.
