Some publication paywalls aside, it’s mostly all out there for people to read if they’re really interested. The problem is, scientific studies are hard for the layman to read and, let’s be honest, rather boring most of the time full of acronyms and phrases that are pure Greek to most of us. On top of that, people are much more lured in by clickbait headlines of fear and harm and sensationalism at what MIGHT be killing you! GASP!… rather than “This thing you thought might be a problem really isn’t. Here’s the proof. Have a nice day.” And so it goes.
Thanks for your post!
