    This is an article on the people who did the work to uncover the fraud (article by their own university). The actual study is published in Neurology 2016

    There is a new article about the subject in the August 2018 issue of Science (link at the bottom of this article).

    It strikes me that there is little in it for those who track down this sort of fabricated data except a desire to get rid of extraneous data in our understanding of medicine. I’m pleased to see that there are still researchers who get as ticked off by this as we are (if not more so: five years tracking down data on fraud is not a light undertaking).

    If we keep letting statements be made, and shoddy or (as in this case) made up research to be published, we will never learn more about human health.
    Forget breakthroughs and proof, give me real observations based on real data. It’s not sexy but life is more than the highlights.
