Never really was when it comes to the medical industry and nutrition (and fields). The deification of all-might Science is goofy and completely ignores how studies are actually carried out, as well as the fact that the moral integrity of the scientists themselves should never be a given assumption because (shocking!) scientists are human beings and many are willing to sell out for a buck.

The whole field of medical science isn’t corrupt and of course the baby shouldn't’ be thrown out with the bath water, but I do find it sort of disturbing when everything that calls itself science is marketed as such.

He charges that as much as 90 percent of the published medical information that doctors rely on is flawed.”
