Scientific Fraud

Today I have been writing a review of the Canadian TV program on Dr Ranjit Chandra - the fraud who deceived the world of nutrition science for nearly 20 years. His story has been told at It appears that he has been salting money away in numbered accounts intax havens for years.

Another story that caught my eye today was about an horrific accident in which 4 childen were killed. It turns out that the mother who was the driver and seriously injured, had stolen the car. It was later reported that her partner was in prison for robbery. Career criminals commit disproportionate numbers of traffic offences.

It seems that criminality, whether it be fraud or violence is seldom an isolated incident.
