Is the Placebo Effect Real?

I discovered this little gem of an article on Big Think.

The title grabbed my mind and shook it hard.  One of the most basic of ideas I have always been taught and had reinforced was being challenged.  I know that is the point of science--take accepted ideas and challenge them.  This one caught me off guard.

This article essentially questions the validity of experimental psych research.  Take a look, it's well worth your time.
