Watch this video, seriously.  This is some twisted psycho crap. Three keys to take home: 1. The ones that don’t get results, get “the ax”. In research (clinical research) they call this fixing the data.  An example: the FDA looks at the influence on diet in health epidemiology.  The researchers threw out several large […]
