Sugar propaganda

2016-09-13 19:06:39.418497+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

The annoying part is the quote from Stanton Glantz, one of the the people behind this current report, saying “By today’s standards, they behaved very badly”. Bullshit. As Nelson points out over in The MeFi thread, by any standards they behaved badly. If we pretend that this was acceptable by standards then, we let a whole lot of people off, and the various Harvard departments today (and any other institution with prestige) should be looking at the behavior of their researchers and chairs and saying "What might constitute 'behaved very badly' today or 50 years from now?"

Because you know this shit is going on.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
