    Okay, not really!

    But why is this in the Science section of RJ?

    Take a gander at this "research" into the flaws of nutritional science (and research work, in general) and how the results get propagated around the globe. As told by the guy who ran the whole scam himself.

    I Fooled Millions Into Thinking Chocolate Helps Weight Loss. Here's How.

    Most embarrassing might be that some guy on bodybuilder.com picked up on the scam before many so-called journalists ever did.

    John Bohannon (for io9)“Why are calories not counted on any of the individuals?” asked a reader on a bodybuilding forum. “The domain [for the Institute of Diet and Health web site] was registered at the beginning of March, and dozens of blogs and news magazines (see Google) spread this study without knowing what or who stands behind it,” said a reader beneath the story in Focus, one of Germany’s leading online magazines.

    Or as one prescient reader of the 4 April story in the Daily Express put it, “Every day is April Fool’s in nutrition.”

    That's why. Science IS research.
    Of course I never gave into it cause I already did my own research and knew better; but his research proved a critical point that society really should learn: Do your own fucking research and stop relying on someone else to tell you what's up.
