In today's goal oriented world, people want every experiment to mean something; to prove/disprove some hypothesis. And so they seem to find patterns in things which dont have any.

The Man Who Convinced Us We Needed Vitamin Supplements

prasadsurve Vitamin supplement may be needed when dieting (707 comments)

I am on Atkins diet. Basically I am eating only meat. (Almost) No vegetable, no fruits, no bread, no rice, no sweets. YES YES I know this diet will horrify some people and yes I know it is not very healthy. But it is effective and I will come off it slowly and start eating vegetables and fruits. But so long as I am on such a diet, I think I need to take Vitamin (and Fiber) supplements.

How Scientists Know An Idea Is a Good One

prasadsurve Failures are very necessary part of science (140 comments)

Science as a process is like Natural selection and just as in Natural selection, one may come with the dead end. This is not necessarily bad.
To quote Thomas A. Edison, "If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward".
