Short & sweet!
The author most lucidly, cogently and intelligently explains stuff on the statistics/studies front --- truly elucidating about the state of current mis-events and confusion --- and NO, as the author most enlighteningly explains, everything does not cause cancer, regardless of what the puppetmedia proclaims!
There's an excellent section, among many excellent sections, titled: Captive Data - - which reminded me of an incident some years past when I read a paper from a pseudo-economist with the Peterson Institute.****
She made the claim that for every American job offshored, two new jobs magically were created in the USA. I tactfully and respectfully requested the source data for this claim; we went back and forth quite a few times until she finally emailed me a spreadsheet which, of course, DID NOT contain the data. After going back and forth some more, she finally admitted she repeated AN ASSUMPTION she had read - - and assumptions do not constitute relevant source data!
****She would go on to a position as advisor with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York [FRBNY], having been hired by Timothy Geithner to replace the fired Prof. Schiller - - fired because Mr. Schiller suggested that the Fed's mortgage financial model should incorporate falling home prices, not just rising ones!
