+ - Doctors say placebo use common->

Submitted by The Madd Rapper
The Madd Rapper (886657) writes "According to the survey, 45% of respondents have prescribed placebos in actual practice (as opposed to clinical trials). They disclosed this with varying specificity, e.g, this "may help and will not hurt" or is "a medicine with no specific effect." Only 12% said placebos should never be used.
