All we need to do is find an effective placebo to treat Aids, Cancer, and Herpes Simplex - can't be the only person to have thought of this.

All this told me was that placebos are placebos. I learned nothing.

@shadow946

Just because it's about medicine and the narrator is Australian doesn't mean it's Doctor Chase. He didn't have anything to do with it

@skullgrin WHat's so weird about that. If the doctor believes he is using a real cure then he is more convincing to the patient. Otherwise the effect is depending on how good an actor he is.

something that this video forgot to mention was that placebo's are also more effective if the doctor administering the placebo doesnt know they are placebos and also believes the pills are real.

now THAT is weird.

So from now on, instead of just putting Reposts up, we'll add a caption that says "AWESOME NEW VID, never seen before!" and you'll all be happy, right?

Substitute a bible for a placebo, and BAM! Religion.

By the way when a "placebo" produces a negative effect instead, its called "nocebo"

You know how parents think sugar makes their kids hyperactive? Not only is it a placebo for the kid, but the parent's perspective of their kids is changed. Sugar has been proven not to have anything to do with hyperactivity.
