Junk Science – 21 May 2007
Yesterday I read something about a study that reversed a previous
study’s conclusion that lycopene found in tomatoes is beneficial in
reducing the incidence of prostate cancer.
Over and over again, money and time are spent on research focusing on
one nutrient. Why isolate a nutrient (like lycopene, for example) or why
concentrate solely on the tomato-eating habits of subjects? What if the
positive outcomes are the result of the subjects’ additional healthful
habits, such as consuming fewer animal-derived products? Why not look at
the “whole picture”?
Lycopene is being used here as an example. Doesn’t this remind you of
what happened with beta-carotene? There are other “scientific studies”
that also utilize synthetic nutrients in an isolated state not found in
And let’s not forget the animals utilized and trashed in these
fruitless endeavors that are just “junk science.”
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
