Tom Naughton – Science For Smart People
Tom Naughton recently gave a great presentation called , and it’s well worth your time. He explains why it seems like there is so much contradiction in his presentation. “scientific” There is a lot of evidence these days, particularly in regards to diet and health. Tom It also demonstrates how to seperate the wheat from the chaff, in order to determine whether an alleged conclusion has been supported by evidence from a given study.
One example is a clinical trial that involved three groups of people. One group was on a low dose and one group was on a high.-High carbohydrate-A second group of people on a low-fat diet-Moderately fat-Carb diet; and another group that eats an unmodified diet. In reality, the results showed that the low-carb diet was more effective.-The carb group lost more body weight and had the highest improvements in all cardiovascular markers including total cholesterol and triglycerides. What did the researchers conclude? “Moderate approaches to weight loss such as a moderate-carbohydrate low-fat diet may be prudent.” Tom’s take on that:
Quoting Tom Naughton:
By “prudent” They meant, I suppose. “we would like to continue receiving research grants from Kellogg’s, who funded this study.”
This highlights two problems with a lot of the supposedly-scientific information reported on a daily basis: first, that research is often tainted by the simple fact that it’s funded by corporations; and second, that many people, including scientists, find it very difficult to accept the fact that, because they’ve been brainwashed by decades of government propaganda to the contrary.
