From fightaging.org. You can replace the text in [brackets] to make the quote about any scientific field.
I’ll note that the publicity department that formed up this release should be ashamed of themselves for the title, which is a enormous exaggeration. It is bad enough that the popular press consistently misstates the results of research into [aging], when so much of that research produces only small effects, without the allegedly more responsible parties also doing so. Not all [longevity] science is equal, but when everyone claims to have stopped aspects of [aging] – when no such thing actually happened – it becomes that much harder for laypeople to gain an appreciation for what is more or less useful in the field.
Well said. This cannot be repeated enough times. Hyping of scientific research results achieves the exact opposite of what it was meant to do – it feeds anti-scientific and irrational thinking. If you want anti-vaxxers, climate-change deniers and conspiracy theory nitwits to rule the world – then keep doing this, if not, then please stop.
