Here’s a recap of links and photos from the HBP discussion group. (Note: Meredith is fully aware that “Roundup” can be used as one word but separated it into two the first time she used it on this blog. Therefore she is stubbornly sticking to this incorrect version. Suck it if you don’t like it!).

Stabby’s Corner (direct quotes from the Raccoon itself in response to this article about science failing us):
”The scientific method is great, it is just that when there’s lots of money involved it kind of disappears out the window. Clinical trials are great and teach us a lot, and people just need to have a view of the context of things. There are too many myopic specialists and not enough generalists to put the whole picture together.
I think that a bunch of passionate people who can read and think without bias, like Highbrow Paleo, yay, is the best way to use science to get to the truth of the matter. Couldn’t we slash cardiovascular risks using science if we came up with recommendations? I’d like to hope so.
Most epidemiology should just restract itself and go home. Give the money to people who are going to do clinical trials that are smartly conducted and based in evidence.”
