Leading doctors list dozens of procedures that ‘give no benefit’ | Society | The Guardian

This article speaks for itself. It is a good example of the self-correcting process of science, and how it trickles down (eventually, and sometimes with resistance) into the practice of individual doctors and health-care institutions and medical schools. I find it very encouraging when the practice of medicine is “updated” to reflect the ever-growing body of research. It is a sign of openness, willingness to re-examine old assumptions and to change habitual practices. This is the step-by-step process by which health-care slowly improves.
