"What is "eminence-based medicine?' It means relying on the opinion of a medical specialist or other prominent health official when it comes to health matters, rather than relying on a careful assessment of relevant research evidence."

Well shut the front door! You mean I shouldn't just trust my doctor??? Sheepish.gif

This article showcases the recent mandatory flu vaccine debacle as an example of this phenomenon.

Thanks! Good read. Very timely in light of the recent debate here- puts the whole "do you trust your doctor" question into perspective.
