I can’t take any study reported on the tv / interwebs / “news”papers seriously any more. Whenever I hear some claim made I just shake my head and move on now.
Was it Oscar Wilde who said there are Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics? Cos that mofo was onto something. Just needed to add Research Papers in there somewhere.
I like the start of the last paragraph “A mechanism to explain the data is still unclear.”…well, why not just make one up then! A lack of a logical explanation has never stopped you idiots before :)
