Placebo Effect

I found an interesting science-based discussion of the placebo effect with 18 comments on an interesting blog called Science-Based Medicine. The Q-Ray Ionized Bracelet, claimed to be a cure for chronic pain via the placebo effect, did not impress a judge who threw out the maker’s appeal of the Federal Trade Commission’s finding that the claim of a cure was fraudulent. The author of the article defends the judge’s ruling and goes on to give a pretty thorough discussion of the placebo effect. The comments are quite interesting too.
