A scientist accused of faking research on the health benefits of red wine sued the University of Connecticut, claiming it violated his rights in firing him.
Dipak Das sued the University of Connecticut, its president, provost and Board of Trustees, in Superior Court. He claims the two-year investigation and hearing process that lead to his dismissal was flawed and violated his civil rights.
The university's Health Center Special Review Board began investigating Das on allegations of research misconduct in January 2009.
Das had become famous for his research into health benefits from natural substances such as resveratrol and tocotrinols. Resveratrol is an ingredient in red wine thought to promote longevity in laboratory animals. The Health Center Special Review Board released its initial findings on June 5, 2010, and in November 2010 it released its final report, which found that Das had fabricated and falsified data.

This should put him in good standing to get a job as a Climate Research Scientist.
Unless you actually think UConn is all wet and you know you didn't falsify data and can prove it.
Or unless people who benefit from your research conclusions are putting you up to it. But then it's a bad strategy too.
On the other hand, maybe he thinks he can fly it past a jury of low-information voters. Roll the dice.
What? Falsifying data only is permitted in investigations demonizing cigarette smoke (especially second hand smoke) and supporting climate change claims.
He should have known better that glamorizing drinking of wine would get university watchdogs up in arms...
Aging is linked to the Bryers Patches in the intestine (infants have clear, healthy, numberous patches, but as a person ages these patches drastically reduce in color and number. These patches are also blue in color.
Yes, eat these things. Eat them freely.
[What's really creepy is this post can't get past the spell checker. Every other post I've posted today has been just fine. Ooooo. Spooky! (Maybe it's all suppose to be a big secret.)]
Not much doubt that red wine and resveratrol are good for your health. In moderate amounts, but that’s true of any healthy food. This researcher is hardly the only guy to say so.
