If you are suffering from an illness that leaves you feeling powerless, or if you know someone who is, and you’ve considered trying something outside the medical system, thinking “I’ve got nothing to lose by trying it”, the following document is required reading:
I’ve Got Nothing to Lose by Trying It Booklet
It’s a short PDF booklet entitled, appropriately enough, “I’ve got nothing to lose by trying it”, and was released by the Sense About Science charitable trust whose goal is to equip people to make sense of science and evidence.
It is a fantastic resource targeting members of the public who have been tempted to try miracle cures based on anecdotal evidence. Please read it before you throw away your money or jeopardize your health.
