GeneralNice example of how science can get it completely wrong and mislead govt policy for decades. [modified] PinmemberErudite_Eric18-Mar-14 2:10 
Saturated fat 'ISN'T bad for your heart'[^]
 
The original study, I forget who by, eliminated two outliers in its data set in order to show a nice linear correlation between dietary fat and heart disease, and went on to form govt policy for decades. Of course as an idea it was simple, and acceptable, and thus swallowed all the more easily.
 
I wonder what other corrupted science with a simplistic message has gone on to form govt policy for decades....
