32. VERY true
I agree totally. Many folks worship "science" and think if a study is labeled "scientific" it must be true. They either don't realize or forget that funding for research can color the type of research done and, on occasion, even pre-determine the outcome. Best to read the study carefully rather than rely on MSM headlines to tell you everything.
