Kaplods, great post. I do some research on how people misinterpret research in the media, and I think you're right on so many levels.

Add in that sometimes research focuses on just a particular group of people, and we don't know if the results apply to other groups of people.

For example, a particular diet may work well for people without carb sensitivity, but NOT for people who process carbs differently. But the research as reported rarely makes these distinctions.
