On another note, I would just like to say that part of the problem we face is that getting overly focused on authority and outside certification of knowledge is part of the problem.
While the “respected authorities” insist that the Kennedy assassination(s) were the work of a lone gunman unassisted by others, the average man on the street is sure that if it was a lone gunman, he had co-conspirators, and most who do any research conclude there was more than one gunman.
In the same way, we must understand that official sources don’t always turn out to be the best place to get information, because they give you the official story.
When it comes to science, I have found more than one instance of the very method utilized to test being the reason why the correct answer cannot be found.
Think about it; if you are testing a headache treatment against a sugar pill, you are still adding more water to the person’s diet than they were drinking before, and dehydration is one of the causes of headaches.
In a recent study on protein and nutrition, the researchers discovered that the fact that the standard method of using milk protein to do any tests for nutritional protein has caused many tests to say that “too much protein” is bad for you, when in fact, their companion tests on plant proteins showed that it was in fact a property of the animal proteins that was the problem. As animal protein raises above %5 of intake, problems begin to be more likely. Cancer turns on above 20% and is a certainty above 50%. On the other hand, plant protein even at 50% caused no problems, not even feeding cancer in an animal purposely exposed to carcinogens that went wild when animal protein above 20% were used.
