Dr Khan ..
"Even if 1,000 people smoked cigarettes for 100 years, at 20 cigarettes a day, not all 1,000 people will get lung cancer," said Khan. "So when you present these kinds of percentages, it raises a lot of interest in the sense that the numbers are very impressive. But are the facts biologically true?"

8O what a ridiculous analogy. Here's another..If a 1000 people whack themselves on the toe with a hammer not all will break a bone?? How is this even close to a valid comparison?

Excellent article..!!

"When you are looking at 3,000 people who have been treated and the (doctors) find abnormalities in most of these people, it's kind of hard to refute that," Haacke said. "The problem is that many of these people are not publishing their results so you're only getting the word at conferences, but they haven't published yet."

I am glad our doctors go to conferences and share what they're seeing. Clinical evidence is ahead of published scientific evidence at this point. A lot of abstracts came out of ISNVD, though, by a wide range of researchers. So exciting. :)

I think Kahn was just trying to convey how rare it is to get a 100% correlation in medicine.
