On this placebo topic, I read once that in clinical trials the drug companies supply the placebo pills as well as the active (the real thing) pills and that they sometimes ad substances to the placebo pill that mimic some of the negative effects of the active pills so that the side-effects reported in the active group are relatively comparable to those reported in the placebo group (thus allowing the drug company to downplay the side-effects of their new pill).

I only read this once (I can't quite remember where) and I haven't been able to find anything on this topic since then. It sounds outlandish, but I certainly wouldn't put it pass these corrupt companies to try something like this.

Anyone ever heard of this???
