Double Blind Studies



Why hasnít a double blind study been used to evaluate the SCD?


Elaine writes:

As you know, the money does not go directly to the graduate student; they are low man on the totem pole; the money has to go to a professor at a University or a doctor connected with a recognised hospital. I personally would not give you two cents for a double blind study on a diet like this - it would be a waste of time as people go home and eat what they darn well like. The best approach is to get a researcher like Dr. Ebringer in UK who has a department where they are permitted to have some autonomy. He also sees patients in his rheumatoid arthritis department. He put an ad on the Internet asking for research money. It would then be able to be published in a journal that accepted his work - and his work is respected. But would the GI spcecialists act any differently? He printed the diet in Clinical Rheumatology in 1989; did not call it SCD but the UK something diet and was curing ankyosing spondylitis and Crohns with it. I can't see where the mainstream have improved in their acceptance. Please tell me where I am wrong.
