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) As I promised fans and readers a year ago, a mainstream, peer-reviewed science journal has just published a science paper I co-authored. The paper has been published by the LC/GC journal and is entitled Liquid Chromatography–Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry for Cannabinoid Profiling and Quantitation in Hemp Oil Extracts.This is the first science paper I’ve had published in a mainstream, peer-reviewed science journal (with many more to come). I’ve also published a water contamination heavy metals analysis paper in our in-house journal called the Natural Science Journal, and I’m the author of Food Forensics, which achieved the #1 bestselling science book on Amazon.com. In addition to publishing Scientific.news, I’m also the founder and lab science director of CWC Labs, an ISO-accredited, internationally recognized food science laboratory.The new paper in LC/GC describes a quantitation method I co-developed with other food scientists to … [Read more...] about Health Ranger’s science paper on cannabis extract analysis published in mainstream science journal LC/GC
(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
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?
build a healthier diet. But just because people claim they want to doesn’t mean they will. Talk and intentions don’t always translate easily to action, but action is really the only thing that gets results. When people stick to a plan and work hard, their efforts are often measurable. But people can sabotage their best intentions quite easily. For example, they might not know how to properly eat “healthy.” They might feel that because they are purchasing or consuming more healthy foods, it offsets a jump in snacking. Whatever the reasons are, people don’t seem to stick to their New Year’s resolutions of eating better even if they believe they are—and as the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding. A study appearing in last December’s issue of PLOS One, a peer-reviewed scientific journal, showed that people actually spend more on food in the early part of the year than they do during the rest of the year—even the holidays. And … [Read more...] about Study: Americans Eat More Calories Following Resolutions Than During the Holidays
While social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube bring benefits to children and teenagers, such as helping them develop communication and technical skills, they can also expose them to danger and risk, such as cyberbullying and depression, according to a new report written by American pediatricians.Pediatrics, the peer-reviewed, scientific journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), says doctors are in an ideal position to encourage children to use social media in a healthy way, and to help parents and families understand and engage with their use of social media while also monitoring for potential problems. Talk to their children and teenagers about use of the Internet, and the issues that face kids online today. Talk specifically about cyberbullying, sexting and the pressure that social media use can put on managing time. Consider the need for a "family online-use plan" that stresses citizenship and healthy behavior. Be aware of the need to supervise their … [Read more...] about Social Media Has Benefits And Risks For Kids
The Chhabra household of Plano, TX, couldn't resolve a family dispute. "My husband and I are vegetarian," says Babita Jain Chhabra. "Our family already eats more fruits and vegetables than most people, and they're expensive." Her husband wanted to buy cheap produce at Walmart. Babita said no—the family should buy organic products because their two children needed the healthiest food possible. "She just assumed organic was healthier," says Babita's 16-year-old daughter, Ria, channeling her father's skepticism. "That's what sparked my interest." Ria, who was only 13 when the organic debate broke out at her dinner table, decided to settle it. She launched a middle school science fair project that bloomed into more than 2 years of research and eventually involved two Southern Methodist University researchers, Santharam Kolli and Johannes H. Bauer. This year, their study, which found that fruit flies that ate organic foods did better in almost every health measure the researchers … [Read more...] about Is Organic Food Really Better For You?
