You know I wonder if there as been any experiments aimed specifically at enhancing the placebo effect? Like a single blind trial with three arms placebo, placebo + doctor "letting it slip" that you are in the group getting the drug, and drug groups. Could be interesting to see how much we can maximize the placebo effect.
BTW thank you for your earlier post. I think you got some good things to say also. I agree opposite ends of the spectrum can be civil. It gets touchy when that word "optimal" gets employed by either side though. Like I said optimal is a fantasy for the most part (well there may be N=1 optimal, but even that is tricky) until someone with the genetic predisposition to live 95 years makes it to 116. Then we gotta document those facts. Till then its hypothesis vs hypothesis.
