Sebastian Rushworth

I work as a junior physician in Stockholm, Sweden. I studied medicine at the Karolinska Institute and graduated in January 2020.

I am a proponent of evidence based medicine. In other words, I think that medical diagnosis and treatment should be guided by the scientific evidence, not by expert opinion or personal anecdote, and certainly not by salespeople working for pharmaceutical companies.

Unfortunately, much of what is written on the topic of health and medicine on the internet is just plain wrong. That applies even to much of what is written on supposedly serious medical web sites. That’s why I started this web site, to improve (however modestly) the information-to-misinformation ratio on the internet.
