Consensus is nonsense in science. Proof is the only value and when I studied the scientific method the scientist had to release his/her data and methods (something Michael “the dog ate my homework” Mann resisted doing because of anticipated nit-picking) to be repeated and verified by others in order to be proven.

Every day, we are bombarded by attention grabbing headlines that promise miracle cures to all of our ailments — often backed up by a “scientific study.” But what are these studies, and how do we know if they are reliable? David H. Schwartz dissects two types of studies that scientists use, illuminating why you should always approach the claims with a critical eye.
