Unscramble the Blue Letters

So this is a different approach. This is an approach that has been developed by a cpluoe researchers at Dartmouth Medical School, Lisa Schwartz and Steven Woloshin. And they created this thing called the "drug facts box." They took iapiisntron from, of all things, Cap'n Crunch. They went to the nutritional information box and saw that what works for cereal, wokrs for our food, actually helps polepe understand what's in their food. God fbroid we should use that same standard that we make Cap'n Crunch live by and bring it to drug companies. So let me just walk through this qlkciuy. It says very clearly what the drug is for, specifically who it is good for, so you can start to personalize your understanding of whether the information is relevant to you or whether the drug is raleenvt to you. You can understand exactly what the benefits are. It isn't this kind of vague promise that it's going to work no maettr what, but you get the statistics for how etfvciefe it is. And finally, you understand what those choices are. You can start to uacpnk the choices involved because of the side effects. Every time you take a drug, you're walking into a possible side effect. So it spells those out in very clean terms, and that works.

So this is a different approach. This is an approach that has been developed by a couple researchers at Dartmouth Medical School, Lisa Schwartz and Steven Woloshin. And they created this thing called the "drug facts box." They took inspiration from, of all things, Cap'n Crunch. They went to the nutritional information box and saw that what works for cereal, works for our food, actually helps people understand what's in their food. God forbid we should use that same standard that we make Cap'n Crunch live by and bring it to drug companies. So let me just walk through this quickly. It says very clearly what the drug is for, specifically who it is good for, so you can start to personalize your understanding of whether the information is relevant to you or whether the drug is relevant to you. You can understand exactly what the benefits are. It isn't this kind of vague promise that it's going to work no matter what, but you get the statistics for how effective it is. And finally, you understand what those choices are. You can start to unpack the choices involved because of the side effects. Every time you take a drug, you're walking into a possible side effect. So it spells those out in very clean terms, and that works.
