Re: Restoring invisible and abandoned trials: a call for people to publish the findings

There is very, very much "non-communicable knowledge" (NCK) in the field of health sciences, for example, in the science of salt.

In relation to entropy, sodium intake, sodium/potassium ratio and other ratios, energy expenditure of aerobic and anaerobic sodium-potassium pump, lactic acid, EKG (ECG), EEG, composition of human milk and natural selection

Some of them:

("The mechanism of thermogenesis is not clear. .. That is why we have not made any
progress even though we have worked on it for more than 50 years.")

etc., etc....

The scientific elite shows astonishing irresponsibility! Forgotten and/or ignored or not understood articles, works, facts, evidence and wrong education, etc. The blind watchmaker first learned physics well, then chemistry. And only then dealt with biochemistry. But he never forgot what he had already learned.
