    That Stanford study that everyone's quoting was totally fraudulent.

    The study's co-author, Dr. Ingram Olkin, has a deep history as an "anti-science" propagandist working for Big Tobacco. Stanford University has also been found to have deep financial ties to Cargill, a powerful proponent of genetically engineered foods and an enemy of GMO labeling Proposition 37.

    The following document shows financial ties between Philip Morris and Ingram Olkin

    Olkin worked with Stanford University to develop a "multivariate" statistical algorithm, which is essentially a way to lie with statistics.

    This research was a key component in Big Tobacco's use of anti-science to attack whistleblowers and attempt to claim cigarettes are perfectly safe.
