Cheating Happens in Science & Technology Also !

October 3, 2015

Astrology is termed as hoax by Western educated persons and scientists. But scientists and technologists commit greater hoax and frauds in the name of science and technology and create multi-billion dollar business by falsely propagating benefits which are no more than a placebo effects .

This used to be done earlier in case of new drug discovery by companies , where they used to compile fake records of thousands of patients for controlled trial of new drugs without actual experiments. Many such frauds have been detected all over world by many governments. But people thought the same was not applicable to surgery procedures .

Now , even surgery process has been found having only placebo effect. Fake Knee Surgery as Good as Real Procedure, Study Finds.

A recent article published in the New England Journal of Medicine by J. B. Moseley, an orthopaedic surgeon, and others, titled “A controlled trial of arthroscopic surgery for osteoarthritis of the knee” disclosed that the much publicised Arthroscopic Surgery had no effects at all while it costed patients 55000 US$ and annually more than a million underwent such surgery.

The patients that they studied were all from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Houston. They recruited some 180 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee who agreed to be randomized into 1 of 3 groups: a) normal treatment, consisting of lavage and debridement, b) lavage (or saline irrigation) only, and c) a sham operation only, i.e., a nick in the skin but no arthroscopic procedure.

Their results suggested that all 3 groups were improved slightly. However, as the placebo group also improved, their conclusion was somewhat damning and extremely far-reaching. They concluded that arthroscopic surgery was obviously of no value in the treatment of arthritis of the knee.

The impact of this article on the public, the insurance industry, and the government has been significant and has raised a great deal of controversy. The conclusions reached by its authors are a good example of why research, particularly clinical research, should be subjected to peer review by experts in that specific field, and results validated, before such information is released to the public.

Pressure of earning money can make any noble profession like lawyer , doctor , teacher's job  a dirty one and astrology is also plagued by this disease but that does not mean that medical and astrology sciences themselves are fake . The practitioners of profession have to be morally and ethically correct , then only  the related  science can truly benefit mankind and astrology is no exception to this rule !
