Last week the Press around the world reported on some partial success for electronic implants given to people with long standing anorexia nervosa. The research was done in Canada and reported in the Lancet.
Partial, meaning that about 2 in 3 of the people in this small trial had positive results. The research is blighted in part by not having a comparison group of people who BELIEVE that they have had an implant, which might have tested for the placebo effect.
This is a very important piece of news which deserves our attention. To get more of my thoughts on whether this is the next best thing, please follow the link below.
