WHO comes to a decision WHICH evidence ARE real?
In 1998 Andrew Wakefield, a British gastroenterologist with a heritage of self-promotion, released a paper with a surprising allegation: the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine may well reason autism. The media seized carry of the tale and, within the procedure, helped to release the most devastating future health scares ever. within the years yet to come Wakefield will be printed as a profiteer in league with class-action legal professionals, and he may finally lose his clinical license. in the meantime one examine after one other didn't locate any hyperlink among early life vaccines and autism.
Yet the parable that vaccines one way or the other reason developmental problems lives on. regardless of the shortcoming of corroborating proof, it's been popularized by means of media personalities corresponding to Oprah Winfrey and Jenny McCarthy and legitimized by means of newshounds who declare that they're simply being reasonable to “both sides” of a topic approximately which there's little debate. in the meantime hundreds of thousands of greenbacks were diverted from strength breakthroughs in autism learn, households have spent their discounts on useless “miracle cures,” and declining vaccination premiums have resulted in outbreaks of lethal health problems like Hib, measles, and whooping cough. such a lot tragic of all is the expanding variety of teenagers death from vaccine-preventable ailments.
In The Panic Virus Seth Mnookin attracts on interviews with mom and dad, public-health advocates, scientists, and anti-vaccine activists to take on a basic query: How can we come to a decision what in point of fact? The interesting solution is helping clarify every thing from the endurance of conspiracy theories approximately Sept. 11 to the allure of talk-show hosts who call for that President Obama “prove” he was once born in the United States.
The Panic Virus is a riveting and infrequently heart-breaking scientific detective tale that explores the boundaries of rational suggestion. it's the final cautionary story for our time.

Example text

The straight line of “best fit” for a set of data points on a graph can be determined by a statistical procedure called linear regression, using what is known as the method of least squares. This method determines the best-fitting straight line by means of differential calculus, which is beyond the scope of this manual. The resulting equations are given in Appendix D, along with the procedure for determining the slope and i­ntercept of a best-fitting straight line. *The mean deviation and standard deviation are discussed in Appendix C and D, respectively.

The degree of scattering is an indication of precision—the closer together a dart grouping, the greater the precision. A group (or symmetric grouping with an average) close to the true value represents accuracy. 143. 142. Precision refers to the agreement among repeated measurements—that is, the “spread” of the measurements or how close they are together. The more precise a group of measurements, the closer together they are. However, a large degree of precision does not necessarily imply accuracy, as illustrated in ● Fig.
