  1. What pleasure will the “scientists” try to begrudge us next? Reading between the lines, and given that the Resaerch has not yet been published, my money tells me that Dr Amid Hamidi, who conducted this research, has an ulteria motive; probably money. He was also involved in writing a paper in January 2008 offering us his opiniopn that the burning of Soybean Wax Candles “will be beneficial for entire population of the world, nations and governments to have healthy and productive generations”.
    I think a deeper look into Dr. Hamidi’s funding would unearth some uncomfortable truths, and probably linked to at least one manufatcurer or Soybean Wax Candles!

  2. He’s a common-tater. Ur, ummm…..
    commentator.

    • Nope Sekan, comment -er …we don’t want him thinking he has a career in it !

      • Hi Loon. As promised, if anythig else emerged I would feed back. The National Candle Association of America yesterday released a statement refuting the claims of these 2 up-starts. The press release states”The assertions of Drs. Massoudi and Hamidi contradict the overwhelming body of scientific evidence on the topic. They have provided no data for review, and their conclusions are based on unsupported claims. No scientific study has ever shown any candle wax, including paraffin, to be harmful to human health!”

        By the way, for the benefit of Sekan, I run a candle manufacturing business. Both mineral and vegetable wax based candles.

      • Thanks Nick ….by the way have you thought of getting yourself a blog? I have checked out your website and us Loons can’t wreak havoc on it because you haven’t got a comment section. Pop yourself onto wordpress get yourself a free blog and let rip. It will do your business the world of good and it will give us another place to play! It seems like you are a pretty good writer. When you have mastered the free wordpress I guarantee you will want to shift your whole website onto a hosted blog (or not!). Thanks for keeping us informed. I love it when someone exposes research for what it really is. Thanks again Nick!

  3. I love your blog. Keep up the good work!
