The CLAHRC WM Director has a grievance and a passion.
His grievance is the bias of journals towards positive results, especially those that fulfil editor and reviewer prejudice.
His passion is coffee.
Imagine then, the Director’s delight in first finding a journal series whose mission is to publish results irrespective of finding (The All Results Journals) and secondly an article showing that coffee drinking is not associated with retinal disease.
Coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world  and the second most valuable commodity exported by developing nations. Scientists have been looking for harmful effects for decades, but the results, in the round, are null or protective.
