Caso emblematico…

Chi è costui? Scommetto che non lo conoscete… Una bravissima persona!

Come direttore dell’ente che emanava le linee guida dietetiche USA del 2010, Brian Wansink – in perfetto stile Ancel Keys – consentì dati associativi deboli. Recentemente Wansink ha dovuto ritirare 15 paper scientifici pubblicati e ha dovuto dimettersi da Cornell, un importante centro per la salute pubblica in USA.

In pratica un’altra mela marcia che propone diete vegetali a base granaglie che hanno rovinato e rovineranno la salute di milioni e milioni di persone…

Ora vi faccio venire i brividi…

Basta aprire Wikipedia dove il nostro eroe ha una pagina dedicata…

Ecco il “parco” elenco dei paper scientifici ritirati, tra cui spiccano i famosissimi PIZZA PAPERS…
Definiti dal New York Magazine



Retractions and corrections

Pizza papers

Panel from a 2011, in which scientists look for relationships between many colors of jelly beans and acne, and find a p value <0.05 only for green ones.[28]
Cited in New York Magazine piece about Wansink lab’s p hacking.[2]

In January 2017, the validity of research from Wansink’s labs was called into question by Jordan Anaya, Nicholas J L Brown, and Tim van der Zee, after Wansink had written a blog post about asking a graduate student to “salvage” conclusions from a study which had null results, subsequently producing five papers from it, all published with Wansink as co-author.[3] Van der Zee, Anaya, and Brown analysed four of the five papers (referred to as “the pizza papers”), and found conclusions not supported by the data presented, and a total of 150 questionable numbers, such as impossible values, incorrect ANOVA results, and dubious p-values.[2][3] According to the critics, requests for access to the original data were denied by Wansink, who cited privacy issues over the anonymity of the participants. A February 2017 article in New York Magazine described the pizza papers as

“shockingly unprofessional” and expressed concern over the journals that published them.[2]

In response, Wansink announced an in-depth review of the four disputed papers, after locating some of the original datasets,[29] and published a detailed response in March 2017.[3] A few days later, Cornell released a statement confirming that the university administration had conducted a preliminary investigation of Wansink’s four pizza papers, and had not found evidence of scientific misconduct. The investigation did find multiple cases of self-plagiarism and confirmed “numerous instances of inappropriate data handling and statistical analysis”, requiring Wansink to hire independent, external statistical experts to check and reanalyze his own review of the papers.[3][30]

Further corrections and retractions follow
Later in 2017, Anaya and his colleagues found errors in six other papers published by members of the Cornell Food and Brand Lab. As of December 2017, six papers had been retracted and 14 corrections had been issued.[31]

By March 2018, two more papers had been retracted and an additional correction made, bringing the totals to 7 (one of them retracted twice, so technically 8) and 15, respectively.[5] In April 2018, JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) issued a “Notice of Expression of Concern” about all six articles authored by Wansink in JAMA and JAMA network specialty journals, to alert the scientific community of concerns about the validity of Wansink’s research; the notice included a request for Cornell to have the validity of the papers independently assessed.[32] In September 2018 JAMA retracted six papers by Wansink.[33]
