Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
Ther eis a lot of truth in this article! All over the world it is the same: tell the lies repeatedly, over and over, either through speeches or on social media and it becomes a truth. A sad state of affairs. The Majority have become voiceless or do not know how to counterattack. Talking loudly, not giving a chance for the other to express is the way of life. In clinical practice I agree with the attitude of putting facts, and convincing will always help though belatedly. But we scientists always win. Biggest solace for science.
