If This Guy Is Right, Then He's Probably Wrong

From the WSJ:

We all make mistakes and, if you believe medical scholar John Ioannidis, scientists make more than their fair share. By his calculations, most published research findings are wrong.

Of course this is based on his own published research findings....

Is this the case where somebody says "X is bad for you", and then somebody does another study and finds that "X isn't bad for you", and then another guy finds that "X in moderation fights off disease Y"?

Sounds like a scam system to keep you and your buddies rolling in research money.

I'm tired of the argument - all you have to do it look around to know something is happening.

All the while everyone is arguing, nothing is getting done.
