Philosophy Wire: Hasty Science. The curse of modern civilization...


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2013-09-04]: A lifetime of too much copper in our diets may be contributing to Alzheimer's disease, US scientists say. However, research is divided, with other studies suggesting copper may actually protect the brain!! [1]

The curse of science today. Nothing like the days when great scientists waited for years before they published their ground-breaking research.

Now researchers are in a hurry to publish. Not any time to confirm results.
Just publish! We need that grant money!
Is coffee good for you? Is it bad? Who cares? (Valia) The point is to publish something!

Money is the new god. Science is just a means to an end.
Leibnitz is surely turning in his grave...
