Why I Don't Go To Doctor (And You Shouldn't Either)

Nearly half of the doctors in this country (america, in case you didn't know) said they regularly use placebo treatments with their patients. Anything from OTC painkillers to sugar pills are apparently commonly used to try and shut a patient up. Which I would probably do too considering how many people must come in asking about all those new medicines they see advertised on TV during CSI: Miami.

More disturbing is that "many of these doctors are not honest with their patients about what they are doing, the survey found." (AP via msnbc)
Remember, when in pain, just walk it off.
