    Great article a usual by John Ioannidis

    Guidelines and other statements from professional societies have become increasingly influential. These documents shape how disease should be prevented and treated and what should come within the remit of medical care. Changes in definition of illness can easily increase overnight by millions the number of people who deserve specialist care. This has been seen repeatedly in conditions as diverse as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, composite cardiovascular risk, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, or gastroesophageal reflux.1  Similarly, changes in prevention or treatment options may escalate overnight the required cost of care
    by billions of dollars.2  Should the specialists of the respective field be the developers for such influential articles?
