Discussion in 'Health News and Research unrelated to ME/CFS' started by Cheshire, Jun 9, 2019.
Wait, it's possible to retract a paper when authors disagree? Weird. For poor methodology and conflicts of interest to boot? And lack of control groups and insufficient valid measures? Hmmmm.... How could that be? Is that a problem?
I thought the PLOS method was to slap a warning thingy on dubious papers and say nothing further. How odd. Sounds almost... arbitrary.
Snark aside, there still really is complete suspension of disbelief and refusal to act over the crisis of replicability. As if it didn't really matter, keep chugging that garbage, no harm done (just don't actually check for that). I wonder what it will take to end the state of denial.
More like highly selective.
How odd. Don't authors usually like to have their papers retracted.
(Stubhaug's study was discussed in this thread)
University of Oxford Mindfulness Research Centre
"Our mission is to prevent depression and enhance human potential across the lifespan through the therapeutic use of mindfulness."
It's already being rolled out in schools in the UK see:
not knocking it if it helps people but as the article says if the 'evidence' behind it is dodgy..(?)
how long before LP gets adopted as another cure all, presumably for those who are not already 'set up for life' through mindfulness?
