A HTA report of the Swiss Medical Board produced in 2013 used an unscientific extrapolation, which turned a valuable and effective preventive medical therapy into the contrary.
Based upon this, even today many people and institutions are mislead by this wrong HTA report.
Therefore, the medical association on ethics and medicine (www.vems.ch) has decided to create information videos in our research channel with the goal to eliminate wrong scientific information about effective preventive medicine and to inform about the misleading working method of the Swiss Medical Board.
