John Ioannidis Aims His Bazooka At Nutrition Science
« on: August 27, 2018, 1235 UTC »
"John Ioannidis is like the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse. When he comes riding in, scientists tremble in fear.

This is for good reason. He first burst onto the national scene in 2005 with a groundbreaking paper titled simply "Why Most Published Research Findings Are False." His statistical analysis and logic are impeccable, and his paper has never been seriously refuted. Furthermore, he has had a tremendous impact: The paper has been viewed more than 2.5 million times, which is the scientific equivalent of a viral Katy Perry video.

Since then, Dr. Ioannidis has gone on to show that the best scientists don't always get funded, why neuroscience is unreliable, why most clinical research is useless, and that most economics studies are exaggerated. In other words, the process by which we acquire new knowledge is fundamentally flawed and much of what we think we know is wrong. Dr. Ioannidis is not just a bull in a china shop; he's a bazooka in a china shop.

And now the bazooka is aimed at nutrition research."
