This little tidbit comes to us via our favorite guy who works here. Junk science has always been a problem, and will remain so as long as the reporting on science remains terrible. Sensational, bogus claims sell better than their less exciting but more true counterparts. I can’t really blame journalists for pandering to their market, but we’ve got to hope that policy makers have a little more sense. Hopefully the CCF and other groups like it will keep the nanny-staters at bay.
