“Recent studies show” is a phrase we see often. It could be said in reference to ingredient or product efficacy, to human behaviors, or even to environmental factors. The phrase is usually taken at face value and typically, no further explanation is asked of it. But what happens when you dive a little deeper into these studies? What do they really say? Is the company or person referencing the study explaining the totality of the hypothesis and the end result? Can they name the study and the author? Listen in as we investigate further, exploring various experiences and the surprising outcomes of demanding “show me the receipts!”
