Trust the Science? Think Again.

Nutrition with Judy

I have been a college professor in the field of Natural Sciences for the past twenty years. I used to be a big believer in the sanctity of scientific processes and the inherent methodology of the scientific method. I thought if you followed all the processes, created a null hypothesis, collected and analyzed all the data, you would be able to generate an easily replicated conclusion to gain information, inform decisions and voila… you have concrete scientific evidence.

I still believe this is true.

If you follow the processes, collect and analyze all the data, you can draw meaningful and functional conclusions about the natural world. Science is beautiful in its pure, uncorrupted state.

But unfortunately, uncorrupted and pure science is becoming increasingly difficult to find.

As a writer and nutritionist for Nutrition with Judy I know I have to cite scientific studies for my material to be considered valid.

And I do.

However, well-conducted, unbiased studies are becoming more challenging to locate. A significant amount of doubt has crept into my consciousness when reading and evaluating peer-reviewed studies, which are still considered the gold standard in science.
