I've just been watching a show on TV where they are saying more Psychologists and Neurologists are working on marketing and advertising than in the health sector........Interesting if true.
Don't forget reality shows. Most of them have psychologists employed to help the writers create scenarios that produce maximum drama.

doesn't surprise me- the health sector just doesn't see the need- nurses however are always necessary- which is why I keep my nursing certification

Yeah, and this is the comment I left there. Sometimes Myers is an idiot. Who cares about what Dr. Oz says? Gee!

"Thumbs down to this post by PZ Myers. PZ Myers should have done more research before posting his ridiculous opinions about medical science.
The fact is that there are more scientists who have found unsafe levels of arsenic in many processed foods. If PZ Myers has the time to read what Dr. Oz says on TV then he is wasting his time watching most probably American Idol. I would advice him to read more scientific research articles before writing this non-sense."

I'm confused... so you're in favor of Dr Oz making misleading (at best) statements about apple juice? Also, from what I read in the article, PZ found this story via the FDA, not from watching Dr Oz on TV.

I donīt watch Dr. Oz, I donīt watch TV. I donīt trust the FDA. I am a scientist and do research with other scientists as well.

I don't know much about this, so I'm curious. Are you disagreeing with the FDA statement about organic and inorganic arsenic, and what is considered a safe level?

You didn't answer the question. Are you in favor of people spreading misinformation on national TV (whether you watch it or not) based on shit science?

If it is fiction then it pretty much has a licence to talk shit. Or else it would be factual. Star Trek managed to at least adhere to certain scientific possibilities, but I don't see tha harm in fictional jibber jabber having artistic licence. You may enjoy the bad astronomy website. Phil enjoys hooking the bad science out of films and tv shows etc.

What is the basis for your disagreement? How does one determine what a safe level is?

from what i hear, arsenic is naturally present in the soil. and in fruit and vegetables, organic or not....

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

This probably isn't so much shit science as science being subverted by the growing insanity that is intellectual property rights. Just when you thought things could not get any crazier

US Supreme Court to rule on whether practicing medicine is patentable

Quote:
The Supreme Court are poised to rule in Mayo v Prometheus, a case that concerns whether medical procedures for adjusting the dosage of an out-of-patent drug can be patented. If the Supremes rule in favor of the patentability of adjusting drug doses and other common medical procedures, it will make doctors liable as patent infringers merely for practicing medicine. What's worse, judging from the hearings, the justices are ready and willing to make this loony idea into the new standard for patentability.
