‘Pseudaxioms’ is a chapter in Hippocrates’ Shadow, and the concept is simple: just as there is pseudoscience, there are pseudoaxioms—false axioms about health and health care that have hardened into ‘fact’. Some trickle into public consciousness while others remain on the health care side. As part of an ongoing pseudoaxiom sunshine project, SMART EM introduces our latest: The Digital PseudoAxiom. Join us as we trace the history and origins of a stubborn and long-lived pseudoaxiom
In future episodes we’ll tackle more, including general health and health care pseudoaxioms that trickle down to affect everyone.
