PLACEBOS. They don't make a big deal of it, because teu don't have to. There's no reason for patients to be suspicious, especially if they volunteered for the trial (which is the standard, as I understand it). The kind of people who would worry about whether they are getting a placebo or not is not the type who would be willing to go through a test anyway. Isn't that job like, discussing side effects an stuff too? The list of side effects from medicines nowadays is worse than the ailment usually.
I figured they didn't. I was expressing doubts about the idea proposed by noparlpf who appeared to me to want to do something slightly less extreme but no less emphatic.
My point was that I don't think it's a good idea to place undue emphasis on the placebo when you're prepping people for the experiment.

Well... Now you know not to? It seems painful enough to not want to repeat at any rate.

Westermarck or Westermark, I think.
