"The evolutionary psychologist William von Hippel found that humans use large parts of thinking power to navigate social world rather than perform independent analysis and decision making. For most people it is the mechanism that, in case of doubt, will prevent one from thinking what is right if, in return, it endangers one’s social status. This phenomenon occurs more strongly the higher a person’s social status. Another factor is that the more educated and more theoretically intelligent a person is, the more their brain is adept at selling them the biggest nonsense as a reasonable idea, as long as it elevates their social status. The upper educated class tends to be more inclined than ordinary people to chase some intellectual boondoggle. "

I like the idea of putting corporate logos of the companies who buy the "scientists" onto the labcoats of the "scientists" they buy. They'd look like NASCAR drivers.

Same thing as first one happened to me last month. Went in for an ear clog (which later infected) but doc refused to help, instead wanted me to take meds for heart rhythm, blood pressure, and diabetes, none of which I have. A former doc told me I was prediabetes so I accepted that, but the med almost killed me. No one warned me it was dangerous.

Former 20 Year Editor Of The NEJM Pronounces Much Of Clinical Research And Doctors No Longer To Be Trusted

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

-Marcia Angell

Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet, also has a similar quote:

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

Chuckle chuckle.

Follow the money not follow the science.

Enough already.
