Not really on topic but I wonder if anybody was listening to Jeremy VIne today on Radio 2. I missed the first part of the discussion but I think it centred around statins and whether good or bad and also side effects. I won't go into the former which can be quite emotive but I found it interesting that one scientist was saying that when people read the paper slips which come with medicines they often get the side effects even if they were not taking that drug! He called it the reverse placebo effect.
Regulars will know my views on such matters and how I advise against reading too much on the internet but I found this comment most interesting. Never under estimate the power of your mind, both good and bad!
