‘Manipulated’ Alzheimer’s data may have misled research for 16 years
This is stunning! We all know people suffering from dementia and/or Alzheimer’s. We have also seen pictures of brain scan images which purport to show the culprit: the build-up of amyloid beta plaque in the brain tissue. What if that which has been accepted as “the science” for the past 16 years were based on what were essentially “photoshopped” composite images?
It involves the seminal study done by researchers at the University of Minnesota, published in 2006.
A news article exposing “the emperor (the great god, Science) has no clothes” appeared in the UK newspaper, The Telegraph, just over a week ago. Someone already archived it on the web, in case The Telegraph is forced to drop it down the memory hole from their own website.
Here is the link to the story
The subhead reads: “Scandal surrounds 2006 article, keystone of recent dementia work, that critics say is based on ‘shockingly blatant’ evidence tampering”
Further down in the story, we find that… (all emphases mine)
QUOTE: Issues with the research were originally spotted by neuroscientist Dr Matthew Schrag of Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, who noticed anomalies while involved in a separate investigation into an experimental Alzheimer’s drug.
In a whistleblower report to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dr Schrag warned that the research “has the potential to mislead an entire field of research”.
The journal Science looked separately into his claims, and said its own investigation “provided strong support for Schrag’s suspicions”.
Although the Minnesota authors stand by their research, the claims are now being studied by the NIH, who can choose to pass on the matter to the US Government’s Office of Research Integrity if deemed to be credible. END QUOTE
Hmmmm…pardon me, but isn’t this a case of the fox guarding the hen house?! We the people, and the patients—the victims’ of Big Pharma’s sorceries—are supposed to have faith in the NIH?? —the same outfit riddled with scandal in many areas, most notably phony Tony Fauci’s agency—but a thoroughly corrupt NIH from top to bottom, it is now being revealed. Faith in them? Not on your life, or rather, not on my life!
Sorry, ain’t buyin’ it! Our guess is that the committee they have appointed to study the issue will be the last we ever hear of it—unless and until major changes happen under a new Congress and ultimately in the White House. We believe that is coming.
