If you saw an article in a serious news source (eg CNN or the BBC, not The Onion, or a random blogger's website) that linked to a study published in a reputable scientific journal, and claimed that the study says "Eating cockroaches helps you live longer", what would you do?
(A) Start eating cockroaches
(B) Ignore the study, because it contradicts what you believe to be true and common sense
(C) Pick a counter example "My Aunt Sally never ate cockroaches, and she lived to 103 years old, so it can't be true." and be satisfied with that, then ignore the study
(D) Google a blogger or news source you favour, that you are pretty sure will pour scorn upon the idea, just to check that they too disagree with the conclusion of the study - safety in numbers
(E) Dismiss the study on the grounds that it must have been funded by (leftie universities)/(heartless granny-selling corporations)/(delete as appropriate)
(F) Follow the link to the study, to see if it actually says what the non-science-educated headline-writing journalist claimed it said.
