I was listening to a radio interview with Dr. Dean Edell and Dr. Doug Diekema (out of San Francisco - not sure how to link it) and during the show they mentioned that there were 14 studies which had been used to come up with the latest statement, the the "three main ones" being the African studies. Does anyone know which studies they used? I would like to be able to reference them myself. My understanding is that there was not actually any new research that was used. Is this correct?
As a side note, I felt somewhat disappointed with Dr. Edell's performance on the show. Yes, I realize he is not in favor of RIC, but I felt he was a bit disjointed and often didn't clearly finish a thought or sentence, so that he didn't wind up making a very strong case in a few different instances. I did appreciate some of his bridge-building tactics - giving some credit to the AAP. I myself would not be able to be so kind, but I do think it is important in these types of debate to show that you are not a total radical, and instead simply present clear arguments supporting our position.
