  1. This is just a small study with only a year’s follow-up. It will be years before we know how effective the treatment is in the long term.

  2. If you want to see how grim the conventional alternative is, read Gerd Gigerenzer’s marvellous book on Risk.

  3. If I had a pound for every “new treatment” for something that I’ve read about, that has never ever appeared in the real world (or usually, ever been heard of again), I could retire.
