The seven deadly sins

So, plenty of time now for reading papers. My recommendation – the deadly sins of epidemiology by Grandjean.

What an individual is capable of may be measured by how far his understanding is from his willing. What a person can understand he must also be able to make himself will. Between understanding and willing lie the excuses and evasions (Kierkegaard).

ok, here we start:

pride – a form of self-delusion
envy and wrath – leads to ingratitude and failure to recognize other colleagues’ achievement
lust, greed, and gluttony – obsessed by seeking satisfaction and seeks frequent and limitless attention and recognition, including the highest academic titles and prizes
sloth – indifference to public health and to the welfare of others

Obviously there was a need to publish that kind of papers, yea, yea.
