    ​That is an extraordinary case! An occupational hazard in the steel making industry is blindness due to IR from the molten steel.​
     

    Medicine in UK has  recently been  held back by a naive unrealistic  belief in "evidence based" medicine. I.e. if you do not have the absolute proof,with perfect science (and what  is that? )do nothing.This is rubbish and kills people.

    ​I am increasingly shocked - and concerned - that most articles in the medical journals seem to have very little grounding in rigorous​
     
    ​scientific method. In particular, there seems to be a very poor grasp of statistics and the limits of validity of statistical results. But as Western medicine is dedicated to treating symptoms rather than finding cures, I suppose this is to be expected.
