    “I worried that the Cochrane Collaboration may cause harm by giving credibility to biased studies of vested interests through otherwise respected systematic reviews,” notes John Ioannidis from Stanford University.

    Note: The Cochrane Collaboration is an organization of scientists around the world who analyze data to try and figure out the truth about drugs and other health topics.

    He continues by saying, “Now even the logo of the Collaboration, the forest plot for prenatal steroids, has been shown to be partially wrong due to partial reporting let alone reviews of trials done with vested interests from their very conception.”
