Study: There Are Too Many Damn Studies

If you feel like you’re newsfeed is full of studies — caffeine is good for you, caffeine will make your heart explode. Smartphones make you dumber, but they also kill your boner, etc. — you’re right. A new study from researchers in California and Finland have found that because there are so many goddamn studies it’s getting harder and harder to keep tabs on relevant info.

You know what that means, don’t you? More taco nights!
