Vineet Chopra raises important issues in this video about the research process and the way information is disseminated and can be distorted in this process.

Publication bias for example, is the tendency where only significant results are published and not-significant results are not. This results that only one side of the story is published which distorts reality.

U-M Medical School researchers Matthew Davis, M.D., and Vineet Chopra, M.D., published a commentary on this subject in the Journal of the American Medical Association March 23.
