Re: Anti-Tobacco Research Refuted
Good point. I recall that when the original article in Science Magazine came out the media had all of these hysterical pieces about how the evils of tobacco are irrefutable and how the whole industry should be banned.
Not a dissenting opinion was allowed to be heard and the authors the Science Magazine article Dennisenko, Pao and Tang had their careers launched into high gear.
The end result of the media actively promoting pseudo-science, suppressed the truth and the public accepted it like it was the gospel hook line and sinker.
