Controversial “Chelation” Study Draws More Fire

“Our taxpayers paid $31 million to conduct a trial that was done poorly enough that we haven’t learned a thing,” Dr. Nissen said.

In addition to the poor grammar above, the taxpayers are out $31M.   Maybe someone can explain how it comes about that all these “studies” benefit the public?  My guess is there are benefits to the chosen few who conduct the study and end the study with “we need to study this more.”

There is no chance that the Gov’ment will apply commonsense to wasteful spending.  I would like to know the amount of money we could save by eliminating foolish studies such as how shrimp walk, or do bees buzz from right side of left side brains?

If you are aware, there also has been no discussion of trimming the budgets of the Endowment for the Arts or for National Public Broadcasting (TV or Radio).
