Some have asked me why I have suddenly started posting more blatant pro-science articles, and the inevitable accusations have started rolling in that I am being paid by Big Pharma/Agro/GMO/whatever disagrees with you. Let me explain a little about why I made the change.
I have always been pro-science, and after graduating college, I became even more vehement about it. I care about the health of people, but not just their health: I care about your brain, your literacy, and your wallet. I originally would shy away from polarizing topics like GMOs and Organics, because I was concerned that I would cause a rift in the fan base, and turn away fans that disagree with me. Well, no more.
No longer will I pretend that all sides need an equal voice on scientific topics. Is everyone entitled to their opinion? Yes. Should most people keep that opinion to themselves, especially when they are ignorant on the topic? Hell yes.
Call me crazy, but I firmly believe in evidence, repeatable, observable evidence. If there is no evidence for a topic, and a clear quantity of evidence against the topic, why would I promote it? Not only does it leave me looking like an imbecile when I am proved wrong, it discredits my brand. My biggest concern for my brand is looking incredible, in the literal sense (not credible).
I feel that when there is a scientific consensus among the leading organizations that a product or substance is fine for humans to ingest, I will heed their advice until it is proven to be incorrect. On the flip side, I feel that some who see consensus among large organizations take it to mean that there MUST be some sort of conspiracy. Unfortunately, that is where the charlatans take advantage of you.
