Mainstream media often either neglects or mangles the newest scientific discoveries and experiments.  Here's one we thought might interest you.  As always, we encourage you to do four things:

(1)  Go straight to the source, read the whole study, and interpret the significance of the results for yourself. Headlines can be misleading. Even our headlines!
(2)  Consider what effects, if any, this new knowledge might have on your life and decisions.
(3)  Share this study with people you think might be interested through Twitter, Facebook, e-mail, and printed copies. 
(4)  Treat everyone with courtesy, even if you disagree with their opinions or decisions.


Science Evolves.
Informed Consent Matters.
