    Im curious why articles and research are still being done when the evidence has been in for ages that placebos do work.

        Agreed, it must be the case people still consider it to be in question.

          I wonder how many people don't believe in the placebo effect. Im sure you're right. There have to be people who think that their brain and body won't be "fooled" by a placebo.
