Lab medicine The illegal practice of providing false test results on clinical specimens–eg, vials of blood, urine specimens, that were deliberately discarded–ie, down the sink, without actually testing them
My comment: The “Modern Synthesis” is analogous to sink testing in the medical laboratory. It was invented in the early 1900’s based on de Vries definition of jump-like energy changes, which he called “mutations.”
[W]hat Haldane, Fisher, Sewell Wright, Hardy, Weinberg et al. did was invent…. The anglophone tradition was taught. I was taught, and so were my contemporaries, and so were the younger scientists. Evolution was defined as “changes in gene frequencies in natural populations.” The accumulation of genetic mutations was touted to be enough to change one species to another…. No, it wasn’t dishonesty. I think it was wish fulfillment and social momentum. Assumptions, made but not verified, were taught as fact.
The assumptions about mutations that were taught as fact led to this revelation: “It was really surprising,” Dr. Bernstein said. “Why would a metabolism gene cause cancer?”
The facts about biologically-based nutrient-dependent RNA-mediated cell type differentiation, which is perturbed by viruses, led to this revelation:
See for example: Breath Test for Stomach Cancer
My comment: The test for H. pylori is one of the simplest tests to perform in the lab. The breath test for stomach cancer will link gut bacteria from metabolic networks to genetic networks in all invertebrates and vertebrates via what is currently known about RNA-mediated cell type differentiation and the stability of all organized genomes in all living genera.
