The Emperor Has No Biochemistry Clothes
This chapter illustrates analysis of the hormesis concept in biochemistry—discussed by Edward Calabrese—and shows how its scientific support relies on logical fallacies that include equivocation, invalid extrapolation, hasty generalization, inconsistency, begging the question, and confusing necessary and sufficient conditions. The chapter illustrates that, even without obtaining any data on hormesis, practical philosophers of science often can use logic to uncover flawed scientific methods.
