You completely miss the point about my skepticism regarding various studies.
When a study comes out which supports the true nature of things (and looks like it makes sense relative to the methodology which was undertaken) I support it. Natural food as opposed to man made etc.
For example the protein study simply reaffirms that man was meant to eat protein, as in animals, fish, fowl etc. (we who like to add even more muscle throw in Grow! protein for it's taste, quality and convenience). There is no surprise here, man was meant to eat protein...
When a study appears which seems to defy nature then I "yawn" ignore it and go back to work.
Most of the nut job studies are done regarding training strategy. Someone takes 12 skinny pimple faced College kids makes them do leg extensions and then claims the ones who did the most were consuming "Hypojuice" or some other brand new product that is supposed to grow muscles on a eunuch.
This is usually done to sell a product or method of training. There is usually, (not always) an agenda. Sometimes the study is done with no agenda and was simply done inapropriately.
Don't you remember all of the studies done on "Vanadyl Sulfate," "Chromium," etc.?
When I see these things, I call bull crap!
