    This is the press release. The paper is still embargoed, but there's a link at the bottom of the page that will take you to the study when it's released.
    .I really wish they had left out the last sentence.

    Sorry, my bad. It was in reference to what was said in the 'last line' you pointed out. It makes their conclusions sound on the fence.
