A question of bad science
It’s a sad comment on the quality of “science” being conducted by supposedly reputable scientists.
Our cover story this week looks at promises made to the alcohol industry by researchers at the National Institutes of Health. According to documents, NIH promised positive results in advance of a major study on the benefits of moderate drinking. Once the researchers got caught, the study was cancelled but not before millions of our tax dollars were spent. We look at the internal emails.
We also have a story that looks into allegedly slanted science in the case of Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup. Lisa Fletcher examines documents that allegedly show the company used “ghostwriters” whereby the company conducted research, then published it under a different name to make it seem independent. Monsanto denies the practice but it has become common in research today.
We never waste your time rehashing stories you’ve already seen all week.
