    Very wise. Facts are very difficult to prove to an individual who did not witness the fact themselves. Even if a million people corroborated the same story about something, there will still be missing elements for the whole truth which their perspective might not have witnessed. Science and the scientific method are so important when it comes to research and studies. Unfortunately, because of greed and corruption, there is a lot of bad science. News and reporting now suffers from our ability to have information available at our finger tips. Those sources of information who have been reputable and trustworthy are now consumed more with being first in reporting something instead of being right.

    I believe it is more accurate to state, “Unfortunately, because of greed and corruption, there is a willingness to ignore good science.”

    By bad science, I was more referencing corporations sponsoring studies and manipulating them to achieve results which fit their agendas.

    I agree there.
    The last 3 decades is rampant with ‘the fox guarding the hen house’ style company greed. Three (or more) decades of companies fudging their testing and reporting of data so they can make quick profits at the expense of long term injury to those who trust their products to help.
