The use of as many as 94 percent of recently approved drugs is not supported by high-quality evidence that demonstrates their benefits, found an international team of researchers from the United Kingdom (University of Oxford), the United States, Switzerland, and Greece. Moreover, side effects and adverse reactions to these medications are being drastically underreported across the board.


The study, titled “Most healthcare interventions tested in Cochrane Reviews are not effective according to high quality evidence: a systematic review and meta-analysis,” determined that less than six percent of the medications that have been approved between January 1, 2008 and March 5, 2021 had clinical data that met the “high-quality” standard.

Sounds about right to me.

I take aspirin and a multivitamin. That's it.
