One of the most challenging elements of social science research is that researchers must often rely on data that comes from humans — and humans are notoriously unreliable. When the CDC published a report in the summer of 2020 stating that 4% of respondents reported ingesting household chemicals in an attempt to ward off the coronavirus, many people were (understandably) alarmed. Researchers who replicated the study, with the addition of some basic quality control measures to eliminate inaccurate data, got very different results. In this piece, the author discusses how inattentive or mischievous respondents can accidentally or intentionally skew data,

A young man’s years of heavy energy drink consumption nearly killed him, doctors in the UK say.

Medical professionals say the results of a new case study are proof that some concerns about this type of drink are founded, after researchers have looked in-depth at a case of heart and kidney failure in an otherwise-healthy young man.

BMJ Case Reports has published a case study led by a research team of cardiovascular and cardiology professionals in the U.K. The researchers have assessed what caused a 21-year-old male patient to present to the healthcare setting with “severe” renal (kidney) failure, abdominal

If there is a bright spot in the beer space amid the pandemic, it is that small-production brewers were afforded the time to make and age proper lagers.

The craft beer industry in America was built on the backs of ales. Hop-forward India pale ales, roasted stouts and hefeweizen were put on offer by the early craft brewers to help differentiate themselves from the larger breweries that cornered the market.

When it comes to small breweries in America today, ales are still the primary focus and largely pay the bills. They can be brewed, fermented and released within a few

First, let’s be clear about something. Having a cup of coffee in the morning can actually be good for you. In fact, the boost in caffeine and the antioxidants in coffee benefit your body in all sorts of ways including strengthening your immune system, getting your brain going, and of course, gives you that energy boost to start your day. However, while drinking it black is truly the healthiest way to drink coffee, it’s not always the tastiest for coffee lovers. And if you’re not careful, those added ingredients can backfire on your overall health if you’re not careful.
