    they seem to believe anecdotal information more than official sources.
    Or, "This lady is my age and she has the exact same thing I do and nobody's helping her either but one lady said..."

    I shouldn't have used the term "bigger" because it's all part of the same problem but it's running wild and, if anything, it's growing as more and more get online.

    I wholeheartedly agree that it needs to be countered but it's a daunting task when so few understand the underlying science and so much is based on statistics, which they hear abused nightly.

    After all, 4 out of 5 Dr.s recommend...

      ...in this diary, about the neurophysiology of fear.

      It's all about the emotional states, which is to say, all about neuropeptides and neurotransmitters.  

      There's your answer.

        I don't understand emotional decisions. I listen and try to understand but in the end I just shake my head and shut up.
        I've had an ongoing discussion with a friend for years over generics and she's convinced that there is an extra-added secret something that makes the brand name better.
        It's difficult enough trying to decipher fact without giving my inner child a vote.
