Why would conventional scientists, invested in traditional ideas, embrace an outsider’s discovery, which would disrupt the current culture and economics of food, medicine, agriculture? Why would conventional scientists, who have invested years in their work, reward an outsider’s innovations that would render old ways obsolete or even prove current scientific consensus to be treacherous? New scientific discoveries are essentially a threat to industries and investments. Innovative scientific discoveries are a threat to favored dogmas and economic models in food science, … [Read more...] about Peer review SCIENCE FAIL: Scientific discoveries suppressed due to pride of “experts” and the defense of economic status quo

Brendan D. Murphy has authored a spectacular piece published by Waking Times, offering astonishing details in support of that notion. His full article is reprinted here. Find the original at this link. See more work by Brendan Murphy at BrendanMurphy.net. WHY SCIENTIFIC PEER REVIEW IS A SHAM In recent years the defects in the peer review system have been the subject of a profusion of critical editorials and studies in the literature. It is high time that the world took heed of what the critics are saying, not least of all because of the medical … [Read more...] about Science is BROKEN, and the peer-review process produces “utter bulls##t” parading around as real science
(Natural News) If you were to submit a research paper to a journal in the social sciences, it would typically go through an extensive peer review process and wouldn’t be published for at least several weeks. This is not the case when it comes to the popular journal Whiteness and Education, however, which despite claiming to have an extensive peer review process, typically publishes papers within just one or two business days.The journal, which is published by Routledge, claims to focus on issues surrounding “crucial discussions of White racism, White identity, privilege, power, and intersectionality.” Over the last few months, Whiteness and Education has supposedly reviewed and published numerous articles on social justice, one of which called for the “destruction” of “whitestream intellectual habits.” Another urged professors to “dismantle whiteness.” (Related: Hunter College in New York City will now require a course on the … [Read more...] about Science journal “Whiteness and Education” turns out to be politicized junk science with fake peer reviews
(Natural News) Remember when I said recently that the entire left-wing scientific establishment has become convinced that everything causes climate change? My assertion has now been confirmed beyond any doubt.A peer-reviewed science journal has just been caught publishing a hilariously fake science paper — written in leftish-sounding “sciency gibberish” — that literally claims penises cause climate change.Because this junk science assertion fits into the lunatic narrative of the totalitarian Left, it was reviewed by multiple scientists and accepted for publication, even though the entire paper was deliberately written to consist of indecipherable nonsense pretending to sound like elitist left-wing “science.” (Find more news about fake science at FakeScience.news.)James Delingpole at Breitbart.com covers this hilarious development as follows:Gender studies is a fake academic industry populated by charlatans, deranged activists and gullible idiots.Now, … [Read more...] about Peer-reviewed science journal gets HOAXED by fake science paper that claims PENISES cause climate change
(Natural News) An exciting medical breakthrough published in the science journal Oncotarget has discovered the astonishing ability of concentrated vitamin C to halt the growth of cancer tumor stem cells.The study, conducted at the University of Salford in Manchester — (see full text of the study at this link) — tested the impact on cancer stem cell metabolism for seven substances:Three natural substances, including vitamin CThree experimental pharmaceuticalsOne clinical drug currently in widespread useThe study’s astonishing results reveal “the first evidence that Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can be used to target and kill cancer stem cells (CSCs), the cells responsible for fuelling fatal tumours,” reports the flagship science publisher Alpha Galileo.Led by Michael P. Lisanti and Gloria Bonuccelli, the study results astonished researchers when it found that vitamin C worked up to 10 times better than a pharmaceutical cancer drug at interfering with cancer … [Read more...] about Vitamin C breakthrough discovery: Low-cost nutrient halts growth of cancer stem cells… 1000% more effective than cancer drug… peer-reviewed science confirms powerful effects
(Natural News) Toxin-resistant GMO corn called NK603 produces its own toxic effects, according to recent research out of the King’s College in London. NK603 is corn that is immune to the toxic herbicide Roundup but is toxic itself, so what’s the use, and why have the manufacturers been lying to Americans for years saying that the genetic mutation that contains weed-killing components is the “substantial equivalent” of its parent – a normal, conventional, non-toxic variety of corn? NK603 GM corn literally produces toxic effects that heighten allergic reactions and propel the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamines.NK603 has been engineered in a laboratory to “tolerate” massive amounts of noxious weed-killers, including Monsanto’s infamous Roundup, that contains about 50% glyphosate, which was implicated by the World Health Organization as a probable cancer-causing agent for humans. Top it off with the fact that glyphosate becomes … [Read more...] about Major molecular differences proven between GMO “Frankencorn” and non-GMO normal corn – serious safety implications revealed by new peer-reviewed study
(Natural News) On Valentine’s Day, a 34-page study that illustrated some of the harmful effects of vaccination was made available for viewing online. Six hours later, the URL had vanished, and the study was seemingly erased from the depths of the internet — likely in the hopes that the “controversial” information it contained would be forgotten.Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports, by Anthony R. Mawson, et al. seemed like any other standard report on vaccination at first glance, according to author James Grundvig. The paper had been linked to Grundvig, and he recently published an article about the study, how he authenticated it with the study’s author, and he even described how the publishing journal went about censoring the information.Grundvig writes that after reading Mawson’s conclusions in the study, it appears that perhaps the CDC has purposefully … [Read more...] about VACCINE STUDY: Peer-reviewed study shows vaccinated children have a 700% higher chance of neurodevelopmental disorder
As the curtain call for 2016 approaches, we reflect on the year's medical advances and clinical research. Here, we will revisit the peer-reviewed studies that have garnered the most fascination and debate on Medical News Today. This year certainly hasn't been lacking in major events; NASA's Juno spacecraft entered Jupiter's orbit, the final videocassette recorder was manufactured in Japan, and the world's longest and deepest traffic tunnel opened underneath the Swiss Alps. The last 12 months also bore witness to the deaths of a bewildering array of legends, including Prince, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Gene Wilder, and Muhammad Ali, to name but a few. Away from celebrity demises, medical research has been bubbling along at breakneck speed. This year's findings include the discovery that reading books is linked to a longer lifespan. Also, scientists finally proved that, even if you pick up dropped food within 5 seconds, it is still not safe. According to the researchers, … [Read more...] about A year in review: The most popular medical research of 2016
Peer review is a quality control measure for medical research. In peer review, professionals review each other's work to make sure it is accurate, relevant, and significant. Scientific research aims to improve medical knowledge and find better ways to treat disease. Publishing findings in medical journals enables other scientists to share developments, to test the results, and to take the investigation further. Peer review is a central part of the publication process for medical journals. It is considered the best available way to ensure that research submitted by scientists is trustworthy and that the medical treatments they advocate are safe and effective for patients. Peer review helps prevent flawed medical research papers from being published. Flawed research includes: Made-up findings and hoax results that are not supported by proper scientific research Dangerous conclusions, recommendations, and findings that could harm patients Plagiarized work, when an author takes ideas or … [Read more...] about Peer review: What is it and why do we do it?
A systematic review is a form of analysis that medical researchers carry out to synthesize all the available evidence on a particular question, such as how effective a drug is. A meta-analysis is a type of systematic review. Instead of drawing a conclusion from a single study, a meta-analysis looks at numerous studies for the answer. It pools numerical analyses from studies of similar design. A meta-analysis can also form part of a further systematic review. A panel of experts usually leads the researchers who carry out a systematic review. There are set protocols for the detailed search and analysis of the medical literature. A systematic review is considered a high form of evidence. The conclusions contribute to the formation of a medical consensus on the best form of treatment. The findings also inform policies set by state healthcare systems, such as whether they should fund a new drug. Clinical guidelines lay out the treatment choices to be followed by health care … [Read more...] about What is a Systematic Review or Meta-analysis in Medical Research?
