How Reliable is the So-called Scientifically Proven Medical Treatment?

Clinical Evidence published by the British Medical Journal (2007) analyzed common medical treatments to evaluate which are supported by sufficient reliable evidence.

A reviewed of approximately 2,500 medical treatments showed that:

  • 13 percent were found to be beneficial
  • 23 percent were likely to be beneficial
  • 8 percent were as likely to be harmful as beneficial
  • 6  percent were unlikely to be beneficial
  • 4 percent were likely to be harmful or ineffective.
  • 46 percent were unknown whether they were efficacious or harmful.

In the late 1970s, the US government conducted a similar evaluation and found a strikingly similar result. They found that only 10 percent to 20 percent of medical treatment had evidence of efficacy (Office of Technology Assessment, 1978).
