    Whenever I read or hear someone said the recent study says.. all I can
    think is “what study? Whose study?” and so on.. I think everybody should
    have this mindset when “the recent study says” pop up somewhere.

    I love how this story starts by mentioning the “Don’t Hug Your Dog” bit,
    which was an op-ed piece written by a retired college college professor who
    conducted his study by looking at pictures of dogs on Facebook. Ted Talks
    are the scientific equivalent of a Home Shopping Network infomercial.

    I am currently working obtaining my chemistry degree, and everytime I see
    one of these so called “amazing” cure studies on tv or facebook I die a
    little inside. What will my legacy be when I finally get to do my own
    studies and have them manipulated for big business purposes?
