Let us all mourn the passing of the used-to-be-respected Science Blogs....now in bed with PepsiCo, who has established a blog on "nutrition" (can I even say that with a straight face?) to dwell amongst the real questioning and honest science bloggers. Oh, for shame, for shame....apparently in the end, money does buy everything. Is nothing left sacred?
UPDATE: (I am rather late with this) Apparently Seed decided to yank the Pepsico blog after their bloggers started leaving in droves....good call, but the damage was still done. Is this the beginning of a new era of science and reporting? Well, heck, conflict of interest doesn't seem to apply to Wall Street, so why anywhere else:?
