It just seems that no matter what issue you talk about nowadays, there’s always some kind if research to back it up. The power of google means that people can retrieve research to prove themselves right, regardless of the point of view. The funny truth is, no one really bothers to check what’s gone into the research. For all you know it may be one mad scientist in a lab, not tested on humans or even a one-subject study. But no one cares. Competition is fierce and everyone has a primal instinct to come out on top. So, as long as some website somewhere references a study or research, people seem to think they have merit to their argument.
