If something is true, shouldn’t all studies reach the same conclusion? They should. But they don’t—for two reasons: • Life is complex, messy, and unpredictable. • Studies differ in design, quality, subjects, and scientific rigor. That’s why it’s a big mistake to put much faith in any single study. The best insights come from examining all the research and considering the total weight of the evidence—including the studies’ scientific credibility. ” Unfortunately, the news media rarely emphasize the type of study—prospective, retrospective, BMD, or meta-analysis.
