In your opinion, what effect do bad (faked) scientific studies have on the public's perception and trust in the legitimacy of science and scientific research?
legitimacy is the popular acceptance of a governing law or r?gime as an authority.Whereas ?authority? denotes a specific position in an established government, [ the term ?legitimacy? denotes a system of government ? wherein ?government? denotes ?sphere of influence?. Political legitimacy is considered a basic condition for governing, without which a government will suffer legislative deadlock(s) and collapse. In political systems where this is not the case, unpopular r?gimes survive because they are considered legitimate by a small, influential ?lite http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legitimacy_%28political%29

what causes cancer?Weegy:
Nobody knows what causes cancer, and there hasn't been a significant increase in cancer incidence in recent years or decades.
The biggest risk factor for most cancers is age, and most people diagnosed with cancer are over 60. [ Such increases in cancer incidence as there have been are due to better health care, which has meant more people living long enough to get cancer. More older people = more cases of cancer.
It's not a modern disease, it's an ancient one and there is no scientific evidence that e lifestyle factors like diet, stress, exposure to 'chemicals' etc contribute to cancer in any way.
Cancer happens when normal cells change so that they grow in an uncontrolled way. This uncontrolled growth causes a tumour to form. It's difficult to see how stress could trigger this process and there is no scientific evidence that demonstrate a causal link, and no evidence that stress contributes to the cause of any cancer or affects the course of any cancer.
This is an interesting Dutch study of 9700 women; it found that the development of breast cancer had no link with personality, and no link with anxiety, anger, depression, or optimism.
This research is a prospective study, which means that at the start of the study nobody had breast cancer; the women were followed for 13 years. Many studies of stress etc are retrospective - asking people after they have had cancer if they were stressed, depressed etc, which of course is far less reliable.
When people are diagnosed with cancer they're often desperate to find a reason or explanation. They remember the events that seem linked - divorce, breavement, job loss etc. But they forget all the people who have been through the same stress and haven't developed cancer, and the people who have experienced no stress or trauma who haven't developed cancer.
Bereavement is one of the most stressful events, and the loss of a child, is stress almost beyond endurance. A study in Isreal looked for an increase in cancer among parents who had lost a child; no such increase in cancer was found.
It's an easy and tempting explanation but no, stress doesn't cause cancer. ] Auto answered|Score .6User:
