The idea that there is a war against “bros” and “real scientists” is laughable. Do you want to know who the real war is between?
People with tremendous personal experience vs. Johnny Nobody.
Johnny Nobody hasn’t accomplished anything but wants to feel relevant. That’s a natural human need – the need to be heard.
Yet rather than take the time to develop and cultivate personal expertise, Johnny Nobody goes on PubMed, reads an abstract, and then comes out swinging.
It’s cute but also dangerous. Click play or go to iTunes to find out why:
Science has had some tremendous fuck-ups:
- Most science is not replicable. Thus, saying something is “real science” begs the question: How can we know when 89% of studies aren’t replicable?
- Doctors refused to wash their hands, killing millions of people.
- Red Skin Syndrome is an iatrogenic condition, caused be medications doctors prescribe.
- Juice Fasting improves health and blood biomarkers and yet is not widely utilized.
In a commentary that analyzed the dearth of efficacious novel cancer therapies, they revealed that scientists at the biotechnology company Amgen were unable to replicate the vast majority of published pre-clinical research studies. Only 6 out of 53 landmark cancer studies could be replicated, a dismal success rate of 11%!
Ignaz Semmelweis was an outcast for telling doctors to wash their hands.
Despite various publications of results where hand-washing reduced mortality to below 1%, Semmelweis’s observations conflicted with the established scientific and medical opinions of the time and his ideas were rejected by the medical community. Some doctors were offended at the suggestion that they should wash their hands and Semmelweis could offer no acceptable scientific explanation for his findings.
My doctor has helped thousands of patients who had my condition. Like Ignaz Semmelweis, he has received hatred from the medial establishment.
Why do fat people go off of diabetes medication if juice spiced your blood sugar?
Why do people who drink juice feel better, and not have the highs and lows people do when drinking other sugar?
If fructose makes you fat, why are fruitarians skinny?
General questions about scientific consensus to ponder:
Why do you believe scientists are more moral and less biased than other groups of people?
Why do some compounds get studied and others do not?
Would you approve a research grant written by a young scientist if the results would destroy your legacy and refute your life’s work?
Science needs bros and bros need science.
Scientists and people with personal experience should view themselves as allies who are trying to find the truth, not as adversaries who take sides.
