    what would have happened if the doctor said the placebo would do nothing to help them rather than saying that a placebo can be helpful? Saying it could be helpful even if it was just a sugar pill still holds the power of suggestion and such.

    There are studies that show how people wearing white lab coats are perceived as more trust-worthy than those wearing regular clothes. So the placebo effect is greatly influenced by our perceptions of authority –which is probably the reason why Aaron prefers to be treated by senior MDs ;)

    I have read those studies also and agree that older MDs seem like they are more trustworthy, though when you have a MD that is too old and seems to have some sort of dementia a younger one might be preferred :)

    LOL that’s almost like the plot of Doctor Hollywood ;)

    I am not familiar with Doctor Hollywood but will become so. In regards to lab coats I also remember reading how people actually do better on tests and such when wearing a lab coat. If they were told is was just a painters smock they didn’t do as well.

    Great show as usual. Speaking of Ohio ghost stories, in the 1980s I dated a woman whose family owned some of the land associated with our local haunted “orphanage” site in Lorain County. Aptly named, the Gore Orphanage legend is based mostly on inaccurate information about an orphanage that burned to the ground with many of the youngsters still inside. On the night of a full moon you are suppose to hear the terrified children wailing. Having grown up next to a graveyard and never seen anything supernatural in my life I REALLY wanted to experience this phenomenon. Sadly, nothing to report other than one night (when I wasn’t there) everyone was awoken by a strange lights an noise from outside… Leslie’s dad grabbed his shotgun and charged out the front door. No spooks to be seen, but a carload of local kids driving around and around the house in a vain attempt to call forth ghosts with all their ruckas. Two shotgun blasts into the air altered them to the fact that a 6’2″ grumpy old dude in pajamas had a gun. Off they went.

    catching up on these shows now, i agree with Aaron, “Glass Coke” is hugely superior!
