Avoiding Fake Publicity

Earlier this week I was following a story about the development of a blood test to detect Alzheimer’s disease at an early stage. The announcement of the test, developed by a team at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, N.J., garnered quite a bit of attention in the world of medical news.

But as I read multiple news articles regarding this ostensibly groundbreaking development, there was something obvious missing from all of them: Any form of data backing up the validity of the test.
