Just because an intervention is new, expensive, technologically impressive, or brand-named does not mean that it is better or safer than other interventions.
People often believe that interventions are better just because they are new, expensive, technologically impressive, or made by a company with a well-known brand name. In fact, such interventions are not necessarily better than others. Moreover, the safety of new interventions is often uncertain. This is because some side effects take time to appear and it may not be possible to know this without long-term follow-up.
BEWARE of claims that an intervention is beneficial or safe just because it is new, expensive, or brand-named.
