Rapid responses are electronic letters to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on thebmj.com. Although a selection of rapid responses will be included online and in print as readers' letters, their first appearance online means that they are published articles. If you need the url (web address) of an individual response, perhaps for citation purposes, simply click on the response headline and copy the url from the browser window. Letters are indexed in PubMed.
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.
