Memorable Quotes:

“I get very frustrated by is most of the studies that get done, only 15% get published. So, there’s a lot of studies that don’t ever get published. And some of that is publication bias. You get a lot of influence by advertisers and what actually gets published. There’s also pressure in funding situations for researchers to find something that is the people paying for it because they won’t get funding” – Betty Murray

“We have the capacity to personalize today through DNA, through laboratory testing, and other things. Population-wide treatment is no longer necessary. We can do N of 1 treatment because we have the capacity to do that today. And to me, that’s what this information also says, is that your practitioner should be looking at you as an individual, not as a data set.” – Betty Murray
