A recent news story covered a study about processed foods and how eating those foods relates to cognitive decline. The only problem is, they didn’t report on an actual published study. They reported on a pre-publication presentation at a conference. While it may not surprise you that news organizations would report sensational results without reviewing the full study, we were still a little shocked. Today we’ll look at the ways we report on research and why we need to do better.
