Show us your data! Not from some random news article that the daily mail posted, not from what your mom or dad told you the other day, and certainly not from any .com
Start with .edu and then people will start to take you seriously.
Stop being so easily sold into slavery. Good grief this place is ripe with bad information.

I'd advise that you add the addendum that the information should be of good quality even on .edu sites. Not all of those articles are fact checked. There are also plentiful quantities of .org sites that are of high quality.
But the general gist of this argument I'd agree with yes. It's astounding how few people know how to actually provide research. Then when questioned they simply say that "you're just being close minded." There's a difference between being open minded and being a shill though...

Also, as for .edu, I know from first hand knowledge that "studies" are not always reliable. These days "peer reviewed" means, you rubber stamp my findings and I'll rubber stamp yours. That is why one day this thing is bad for you and the next the same thing is good for you.
