I was reading Stepahnie Seneff's article for the WAPF quarterly magazine about sulfur deficiency. In the article (which is a must read once it gets online), she points out that the biochemical reactions of cholesterol sulfate and vitamin D3 sulfate haven't been worked out. There isn't even an RDA for sulfur. The assumption has been that obtaining sulfur (which the eighth most prevalent element in the body) won't be a problem. The mechanism which kick in during a sulfur deficiency aren't clearly known. Overall it seems like scientist haven't been asking the right questions about sulfur.
What other topics are scientist asking questions the wrong questions about? What topics aren't they asking questions about at all? It would be nice if these were thoughtful topics and not just people saying diabetes research and low fat diets over and over again. Of course the AHA, ADA and the drug companies have their scientists doing a good amount of ridiculous research. But what topics is the scientific research totally neglecting or exploring in the wrong manner?

It's all moving in the wrong direction.The question has gone from"How can I fix this and and help people?"to"How can I keep getting kickbacks from agribusiness and drug companies without being so obvious that the general public figures it out?".There are some people out there doing amazing work,don't get me wrong.But,from my observations, it's way too far on the side of feeding the bank account and not the benefit to mankind account right now.The backlash against natural healing is a prime example.The drug companies don't want you to realize you don't need them,so they pay for"research" about how dangerous it is to use holistic healers,and push for bills like the one below to pass.

I would say that mostly, the wrong questions about blood lipids are being asked and reported on. There has been some work done which examines their role in infectious process, but even that is not making it into the mainstream where it becomes accessible to a large audience. I think the blogposts by Paul Jaminet are very much pointing in the right direction for what needs much more work and many more questions and appropriate dissemination. It's a BIG deal and obviously, a whole 'nother take on "evil" cholesterol.
