Further Information

From the National Institute of Statistical Sciences, S. Stanley Young, the Director for Bioinformatics, comes this timely piece, which in laymen terms, explains what the challenges of epidemiological research are and why it is so prone to be junk science.

Coming from this institution, it is also a voice of alarm to the entire scientific community -- a voice raised in serious concern that the integrity of all researchers, scientists, and statisticians are at serious risk.  Indeed, the very sovereignty of nations is being challenged by junk science and the NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations, special interest groups) who carry it to politicians and citizens to encourage and demand more laws based upon unorthodox, unverifiable junk questionnaire studies, unethically portrayed as unquestionable, measurable and verifiable science.
