Abstract: Doctors, let alone lay people, are bewildered by all the contradictory theories presented in current health books as result of the many studies being presented, usually for commercial purposes. “Theory” in the medical field often means just a guess – frequently incorrect. In physics and engineering, say, “theory” means an accurate prediction of real-life results which will not be found to be incorrect a few years later. In contrast, the plethora of contradictory results of studies in medicine and nutrition often lead nowhere and are later reversed. Most medical science isn’t science at all. A true experiment is meaningful only when it can result in valid recommendations. These are rare in the medical field, because it is next to impossible to control a person’s environment well enough to come to an accurate conclusion rendering many, if not most, studies of little worth.
