    @Sean
    I've never been to reddit before.
    When I had a look I found this link: http://www.bmj.com/content/349/bmj.g7015
    A BMJ article titled: The association between health related science news and academic press releases.
    Suggesting that academic press releases (ie universities) hold some blame for media taking every study as the final word on the subject.
