Flying Without Wings

Even if you've never read any medical journal, I invite you to read this medical article, at least its title, published in the British Medical Journal, a very prestigeous medical journal.

I still can't believe this was published. Sheehan would have turned this down!

The authors were investigating if any trials were done to see if parachutes really did save lives of people jumping from very high altitudes! They didn't find any and they recommended doing trials to prove that.
Published in their December 20th, 2003 issue , Volume 327(7429).
