NICE ONE BORIS!

May 16, 2017

Britain shouldn’t be forced into conditional and protracted negotiations over different aspects of Brexit.
Each topic should be discussed independently on its own merit.

GOOD SCIENCE?

May 6, 2017

A study has been carried out to determine the cause of statin side-effects.

According to the results of this study the side-effects of taking statins weren’t caused by the drug itself but psychologically – a kind of hypnotic effect; Belief is a very powerful force, which is why serious studies are always conducted “double-blind” (Where neither the patient nor doctor knows whether the pills are real or dummies.)

This appears to be a very serious study professionally carried out, but there are serious caveats; The lead author of the study takes the drug himself and the study was paid for by Pfizer – the producer of the drug. This doesn’t mean that the results aren’t genuine, but one would be more confident if such a study were financed by an independent body.

FAD SCIENCE:

Is the “good health” industry distorting science to create a “band-wagon” effect?

A study by Harvard University has found no correlation between gluten and coronary heart disease.

BAD SERVICE:

February 20, 2017

It can be a mistake not regularly checking ones’ bank statements as I found out last year. I was very busy at the time and never got round to it. When I did, it came as a shock to find that I had been charged for Internet services that I hadn’t used. After contacting the call centre at the Three store and also one of the companies concerned I wrote to the head office. I didn’t find the service very helpful especially when they were asking me to repeat information that I’d already given and suggesting actions that I’d already taken: Case on-going.
