You know, Timbo, you can say what you want about the scientists. It really comes down to the people.
What are you talking about? No, it doesn't.
It comes down to applying proper scientific discovery of randomized control groups resulting in reproducible results, then peer-reviewed and published for future academic scrutiny, in ORDER to allow 'the people' to make educated decisions based on empirical evidence, rather than from those who promote tortured, uncorroborated DATA derived from an answer in search of a question.
Anything less is purely junk science and quackery, not to mention that it usually results in far more harm than any potential benefit.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.
