Ollinger,

As I said, I wasn't trying to defend these studies' results -- only asking why scientists would be conducting studies that seemed to fly in the face of basic biological principles as articulated in your post.

Your answer to this question seems to be that drug companies will pay people to study any implausible thing if they think it will help their bottom line, that medical researchers will gladly take their money and study the implausible things, that the drug companies can (and do) essentially tamper with their results by only permitting helpful studies to be published, and that "peer-reviewed" journals will obligingly publish these bought-and-paid-for study results.

That's a pretty distressing thought!
