Once (not if) their predictions are shown to be overblown, will they be penalized in some way? They are making the entire scientific community look bad and fueling "told you so" conspiracy nuts. This is gonna discredit even climate change models in the long run.

Why do people outside of statistics and physics insist so much in misusing scientific methodology for personal profit? Why doesn't the scientific community shun them?

Protein Absorption

No.11542839 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hi /sci/

Do you know anything protein absorption?

I read this article saying you can only absorb 15g of protein from a protein shake. So I'm shitting out the extra 9g of protein in every shake I have.
>https://www.precisionnutrition.com/rr-whey-too-much
It refers to this study, which says you can use enzymes to increase absorption significantly:
>The results of this study indicate that supplementing 50 g of [whey protein concentrate] with 50 mg/g or 100 mg/g [enzymes]... significantly increased the absorption rate of [whey protein concentrate] over controls.
>https://jissn.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1550-2783-5-10

What do you think, /sci/? Is it legit?

Do I need enzymes? Or maybe I just need more meat which will probably stay in the gut for longer.

Tigers can catch a virus from people

Ok, I am now calling bullshit.
There has to be something else going on with these tests.
This makes literally zero sense.
Virologists on /sci/ wanna chime in on this?
