POLITICAL SCIENCE: MedPundit Sydney Smith writes in TechCentralStation that -- from The Lancet to the American Public Health Association -- it's getting more common for physicians and scientists to distort results in service of a political agenda. She's absolutely right. It seems to me that the CDC's junk science in favor of gun control -- which has spread that disease throughout the Public Health community -- was the opening wedge for a lot of slanted research. The result is that people don't trust them as much as they used to, which is causing a lot of trouble where important issues like vaccination are concerned.
Heck, these guys can't even talk straight on the Atkins diet.
