You do realize that there is a large body of evidence showing the damage of exactly this sort of false balance reporting? “On one side we have doctors and evidence, one the other a 20 yr old with no quals whose only claim to fame is she married a footballer”

Yep, to be brutally honest I don’t think I have ever regretted leaving academia

That’s crap. A supportive environment is key to successful research. Sorry you’re going through this

I’m sorry for your loss. There is no doubt heroin kills but the claim that a wall on the Southern border would significantly reduce heroin imports does not appear to be factual. Likewise the advertising images are so blandly incorrect they almost mock these deaths

Oh, you do realize that this is a staged photo, right? I can see you support Trump but that doesn’t mean fantasy becomes reality in the real world

Wow, is that 3 ml syringe with a 21 gauge needle? Most heroin users use 1 ml with a much smaller gauge (25 - 30). If a marketing firm can’t even do basic research it suggests their angle of ‘conservative’ is for fiscal rather than well researched reasons

In no way does that answer any questions. 1. Do you think the sun is closer to earth than Mars, 2. How do you explain Mars in retrograde ?

Um, so you think the sun is closer than Mars? The same Mars we have sent multiple robots to. So they turn left at the sun to get there?

If Earth is the centre of the universe do was want to explain what occurs when Mercury is in apparent retrograde motion?

Um alcohol is a legal drug which does more damage than most, with the possible exception of tobacco. There is very little justification for what is legal/illegal. Prohibition doesn’t work, pill testing is harm minimization which is shown to work

Wow, so C.diff deaths are pharma’s fault? Even chemo - if someone’s having chemo it’s likely they have cancer so not sure that chemo can be blamed for all these deaths.

Oh dear, self reporting survey by antivax group. Maybe look at Schmitz et al, 2011. Only difference was that fully antivacvinated kids got more vaccine preventable diseases . Huge surprise at that funding
