A couple of years ago, I wrote about how far too much of human nutrition research was unfit to draw conclusions from. This new story does nothing to make a person more confident in the field: it’s a detailed look at the lab of Brian Wansink at Cornell, where he hold an endowed chair. He’s the former head of the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion at the USDA, author of both a long list of scientific publications and popular books, and his work is widely quoted when the topic of human behavior around food comes around. And it appears more and more like most (all?) of that work is in trouble.
