Nobody is denying smart phones have had a large impact on the world. I do deny they are anywhere near in importance to, say, the invention of the computer, space flight, the atom bomb or antibiotics. There is absolutely no comparison.
It's like comparing the invention of a specific kind of internal combustion engine to ... the invention of the heat engine in the first place. The harnessing of heat into mechanical energy was a cataclysmic event for humanity. It made possible industrial civilization. The invention, say, of the diesel engine was an improvement which also had consequences. It's not really comparable to "heat engines" though!
How much “usefulness” are you “getting done” by spreading scientifically proven false information?
- there is gestational diabetes that has nothing to do with weight
- also certain diseases, medications, surgeries, and infections can cause diabetes.
- type 1 diabetes also has a genetic component.
But ultimately: my point is factual and stands -the main result of using biotech to treat diabetes is to allow more fat people to make themselves sick without killing more pigs and horses. Which is how diabetics were treated in the old days; with pig and horse insulin.
And if you are aware of the “etiology of diabetes” how was it useful to spread a falsehood?
You asked which fact was proved false - here it is.
Would the book you want to write also be full of factually incorrect “jokes”?
Would it also be a "joke" to say autism is caused by vaccines just because some ignorant people think that?
