Tufts University ranks Cheerios as healthier than beef
« on: August 21, 2022, 1010 UTC »
Tufts University "Food Compass" shows Cheerios with a score of 95 (very healthy) and beef scoring at a horrid 33.
Higher score: healthy.
Lower score: bad for you so say the experts. Experts?

Some years earlier, also from Tufts:

https://phys.org/news/2005-08-published-false.html

Study: Published research often is false

A recent study suggests false findings are often evident in published modern research.
John Ioannidis of Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston and the University of Ioannina's School of Medicine in Greece said, "There's increasing concern that in modern research, false findings may be the majority or even the vast majority of published research claims."


I'm guessing Ioannidis' study was a pre-emptive strike on what he knew would eventually emanate from his employer.  ;D

These studies are often funded by food companies interested in selling you their overly processed garbage. 

Even 50 years ago they were doing this: https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/09/13/493739074/50-years-ago-sugar-industry-quietly-paid-scientists-to-point-blame-at-fat

Follow the money.
