The Retraction Watch web site shared an article about null hypothesis testing — “Almost 40% of peer-reviewed dietary research turns out to be wrong” — which illustrates why direct, experimental studies on humans (like our study) can yield more accurate and reproducible data than statistical methods. This is not to say statistical methods are wrong […]

The outcome of this study may make a substantial contribution by definitively and credibly evaluating the human effects of endocrine disruptors and other environmental chemicals. Regardless of whether the thesis of this study is proven or not, it will add vital data that can help scientists, health professionals, and the general public to understand risks […]

The formal name of this study, as approved by the UCSF Medical School Committee on Human Research is: “Clinical blood profile assays as biomarkers to assess potential health effects resulting from the controlled elimination of suspected dietary and environmental chemical toxins.” That’s a mouthful, more than a little awkward when mentioning in conversation and does […]
While it was not part of the design of our study, the protocol may well provide an answer to a paradoxical question posed by researchers in 2009 who found indications that Bisphenol A (BPA) may not be eliminated from the body as quickly as thought. The Issue Most studies of the half-life of Bisphenol A […]
