RESEARCHERS DISCOVERED 400 MEDICAL "FACTS" THAT WERE SHOWN TO BE WRONG (LIKE PEANUT ALLERGIES IN KIDS, DUST MITES AND ASTHMA)
Most people assume that standard medical advice is based on substantial amounts of scientific research. However, like most assumptions, this one, too, is wrong. In fact, researchers recently discovered that nearly “….400 routine practices were flatly contradicted by studies published in leading journals.” The study included scientists from universities in Oregon, Illinois, and Maryland.
Of more than 3,000 studies published from 2003 through 2017 in JAMA and the Lancet, and from 2011 through 2017 in the New England Journal of Medicine, more than one of 10 amounted to a “medical reversal” -- a conclusion opposite of what had been conventional wisdom among doctors.

The article has a total of 10 findings. The following link is to the meta research that the researchers conducted where all of the findings can be reviewed. https://elifesciences.org/articles/45183?utm_source=content_alert&utm_medium=email&utm_content=fulltext&utm_campaign=12-June-19-elife-alert
