    It is pretty well all she (and a few others) have. They have largely built their careers and reputations on it, so if it turns out to be wrong or trivial, then ignominy and irrelevancy loom for them.

    One of the big problems in this study was it used the empiric criteria (2.54% of the population, picks a lot who likely simply have depression).
