Debunking Research: Ask These Questions

Should you trust that new study reported in the news? Just how good is the research?

Relief is in sight for curious parents...

The rational folks from Stats (at George Mason University) penned some guidelines for evaluating health research . Concise and right on, take a gander if you're interesting in learning the questions you should be asking when you read the latest research. Isn't this one of the most entertaining and satisfying website going??? Where else can you learn whether Pyrex can explode in the microwave and whether bisphenol-a is as dangerous as we've been lead to believe by recent reports.

Maybe I'll send the link to The White House where scientific thinking seems to be lagging these days...
