Science Says!

Have you ever read a scientific study and believed it? Did you think about reviewing the framework of the study and rating whether the methods were sound or not.

Have you ever heard, "Studies show..." and do you tend to believe the information if the sentence started with those words?

In my Psychological Research Lab class, the Prof posted this Powerpoint.
If we believed the information in one study and convergence was completely non-existant, this is what we would believe about bread. (Yes, bread... as in Wonderbread.... as in carbs)

Entertaining? Yes.
Interesting? Yes.
Give up bread? No.
