One Blob is not like another if one is GREEN and the other WHITE. .......................
This 'Report'seems to have left a lot of stuff out.
It is scrappy.
It is bereft of real scientific and chemical data.
I've seen better reports on an analysis fron 6th.Formers.
It raises questions that are passed over apparently unnoticed and remain unanswered.
Perhaps the Authors were of the opinion it would only be read by Medicos ( who are NOTORIOUSLY WEAK ON CHEMISTRY)and would be accepted because it seems to be keeping the Medical status quo. Obviously it never occured to them that it would be seen by some who could see its many failings. Take this example>>>>>>>>
I QUOTE...>>> "Experimentation revealed that mixing equal volumes of oleic acid (the major component of olive oil) and lemon juice produced several semi solid white balls after the addition of a small volume of a potassium hydroxide solution. On air drying at room temperature, these balls became quite solid and hard." <<<<<............ .
So they were looking at 'GREEN OBJECTS' and produced 'WHITE BALLS' which did not seem to have the same physical attributes as the matter being analysed ????
This was glossed over, without a hint of curosity ???????
The fatty acid analyses were not listed or quantified or qualified.
All in all not very Scienific.
Everyone is left sitting on the fence.
