David Weinberg over at Science-Based Medicine has his part two of a deep dive into the so-called SCOTS trial, which is a non-traditional pay-for-play study. I highly recommend it.

In this piece, Weinberg provides interesting background on the two people running SCOTS. I’ve had many concerns about the SCOTS “trial” over the years. See my most recent piece where I posted questions I thought I would have answers to with a planned interview with SCOTS. But it never happened.

Weinberg also provides new info on an investigation by The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO).

To me, the situation with AAO just raises more concerns.
