June 22, 2015

Here is a great graphic that communicates succinctly.  Give it a view at http://www.compoundchem.com/2014/04/02/a-rough-guide-to-spotting-bad-science/

To whet your appetite..

  • sensationalized headlines
  • misinterpreted results
  • conflicts of interest
  • correlation vs causation
  • unsupported conclusions
  • problems with sample size
  • unrepresentative samples
  • no control group
  • no blind testing
  • selective reporting
  • unreplicable results
  • non-peer reviewed material
