|Title||Psychiatric Assessment of Patients with "20th Century Disease"|
|Publication Type||Journal Article|
|Year of Publication||1985|
|Authors||Stewart, D, Raskin, J|
Stewart and Raskin ridicule patients by using straw men, sloppy sampling and hyperbole. Later, CMAJ editor told me it was the article for which they received the most complaints ever. Estimates range from 24,000 to 500,000 preventable Canadian deaths since the article was published.
