NBC apparently doesn’t understand the concept of disease-mongering. Or else they don’t care. Because they keep practicing the same flawed reporting on restless leg syndrome.
See my entry on The World Health Care Blog.
And for anyone with legitimate restless leg syndrome, please read the entire column before writing to me. I’m not questioning your symptoms. I’m questioning news coverage. And if you represent a drug company that makes a drug for restless leg syndrome, don’t bother to write. I am aware of your astroturfing campaigns.
