A major contributor to this crisis is a lack of understanding by most medical professionals of a few simple facts about medical science.  This has occurred due to problems in the training of health care professionals, with the resulting outcome that few professionals involved in medical decision-making understand what is required for information to be trustable and useful when making decisions about medical interventions.
