Downloaded the How Stuff Works application and came across several interesting articles. There was an interesting podcast on the placebo effect. A particular interesting finding was that even if a patient knew he was given a fake pill, he was still likely get better. It's called an "honest placebo". Another interesting point to note was that the colour of the fake pills also displayed different effectiveness. For example, green was found to reduce anxiety.
