This is What I Mean When I Say So Many Studies Are Flawed

I recently got a link to this article from a friend of mine, who knows that one thing I hate is how awful some supposed "research" is these days. There are people using data to justify conclusions that aren't remotely supported by their evidence. They misuse statistics left and right, and leave enourmous gaps where there should have been follow up studies. They use really awful data sets. Bad samples. Here's an example of all of the above!

I've never read The Number Guy's column before, but I just signed up to get an email when there's a new one! Excellent column.
