Perhaps, but there's a few people on this thread - as well as GPs - to whom this would be news indeed. The people "spouting crap" are often patients who mysteriously return to the doctors surgery again and again, despite having received treatment that maps their near "identical pathways of disease progression".

I'm interested to hear why you think that happens?
