Scientific Studies 101

I just found this great guide from the European Food Information Council about how to read and understand a scientific study.

It's a well known-problem that cutbacks to news rooms has eliminated a lot of science reporters, and general  purpose reports end up covering some of those studies. With the recent scandal where reporters for big media companies agreed to avoid contacting opposing views in order to receive a problematic study early, it's important that every reporter learn the basics.
