More Bad Science PR

I wish universities would just stop submitting press releases for research results. Honestly, results in a mouse are interesting but they prove nothing about human beings. This kind of stuff at ScienceDaily is just grandstanding for the sake of alumni donors. If major pharmaceutical companies did this, their board would be fired.

It's like saying, "Hey, I almost built a house because I've shown that a nail can hold two pieces of wood together."
