Con-Clue-Shuns of Science

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Thursday, February 9, 2012

Anyone who reads health blogs must already know that science is often not our best friend.

And it never said it was.

Science adopted the Null Hypothesis back in the 1930’s. Basically, science formulates and tests hypothesis to prove them false, i.e., null. Therefore, a null hypothesis means you can Never prove something is True. A set of data from a scientific study can only reject an hypothesis or fail to reject it.

Thus, by definition, the conclusions of science are never positive in the sense of giving us answers. Science doesn’t have answers; it just has more questions. That’s why I read at the end of most studies that “more research must be done to come to any conclusions”. It’s also a great way to ensure that the funding never stops.

That why much of science is a Con, that Shuns the many Clues that are, in fact, uncovered by science.

For example, take the following excerpt from Suzy Cohen’s book Drug Muggers. 14 Classes of Drugs that Deplete Your Body of Magnesium shows that almost 100 drugs make you lose this precious mineral.

Scientists and researchers came up with this information…yet where are the headlines announcing the conclusion that many drugs deplete you of your most important mineral?


Other research shows that most of the conditions that are treated with these magnesium-depleting drugs can actually be treated by using magnesium.

So, let’s get this straight. Science is not going to give you the conclusions you need to lead a healthy life. You have to draw your own conclusions from your own research and your own experience and reading between the lines…or from reading my books and blogs!

As always, I suggest you and your family and your friends start by experimenting with magnesium…and prove it’s amazing effects for yourself.

Try to get 400-800 mg of magnesium from food or supplements. Here are some common food sources of magnesium. But be aware that the soil foods grow in has to contain magnesium in order for these numbers to have any meaning. In other words, we really don’t know how much magnesium is in the foods we eat. But if your magnesium deficiency symptoms go away when you eat a lot of these foods, you are obviously on the right track.
