Yet again as I watch the news this morning, I see a story that gets my cortisol levels all in a tizzy.
Thats right! Red meat now CAUSES diabetes!
At least they gave Taubes a little press for the dissent, and a few people in the comments have seen the light. However, the over arching message is plants good, animals bad. No controls, no actual science. Just surveys, anecdotal evidence, and correlations. And of course, red meat and processed meats are grouped together.
So what can we do as a community, as a group of people to bring an end to this. I mean I know that we get on the comments and out this psuedoscience for waht it is. But is there anything that we can do to actually change what can be legally reported and what can be published? Yes, I think we need to group lazy reporters in with the lazy scientists.
