Here's a link to the study itself, if you care to look at it: www.biolsci.org...
I know I'm going to be flamed twice for this, but on this issue, I don't know enough about the issue to be concerned. It's a case of "ignorance
is bliss" for me at the individual level. (Ok, I'm braced for the first flames.)
Second, there is a real question in the study, that I would appreciate someone explaining to me. They seem unsure whether the problem came from

And, is the debate over? I don't think the French study will end the debate. Even the sudy's authors are asking for more studies. (Ok, three
