Are most studies today legtimate or subjective?

According to my doctor who is also a PHD researcher. Many trials are subjective and data is manipulated.
You know I constantly complain about the lack of information provided by Spectrum. Is this why?

In my opinion, ethics and morals have been all but sidelined in today's world, and it's across the board. From governments, to businesses, to religions institutions, charities etc. etc.; greed reigns supreme.
That doesn't mean that there aren't a lot of good people and organizations out there, but the greedy and power hungry seek positions of power more so than other personality types. So, even in a Democracy, the pool from which we have to choose a leader is all but filled with greedy and power hungry people. The odds of a good guy rising to the top are pretty slim. Most good people are down in the trenches working, and not seeking money and authority. That's been a problem throughout the history of civilization, but I think that problem's getting worse.
As a result, regarding research, researchers have to deal with those movers and shakers in authority to get funded, and their sales pitch may be a little less than honest.
Then we have the research that is funded by business. The same businesses that are trying to sell, or will be selling the product being researched. Once again; less than honest.
So, I agree. Objectivity is rare these days.
I don't know a lot about Spectrum, but they may be more about promotion than hands on research. If that's the case, they may not have staff that can answer research related questions adequately. But, they should have staff that could refer their readers to those who could. It doesn't sound like that's been your experience.
