Corrections

Omega-3 dietary supplements may not provide much heart benefit. Save your money and eat your vegetables.

Tap water is safer than bottled water.

Contrary to common belief, living together before marriage does not increase the risk of divorce. But partnerships made when young are more likely to fail, whether the couple starts married or not. Some previous research confounded those factors.

“Tequila reported to reduce risk of type 2 diabetes.” Well, that’s the headline. The research didn’t use tequila, but substances extracted from the agave. And the trials were on mice. So if that’s the conclusion reported by the researchers, rather than by some hopeful journalist, I am suspicious it’s from the researchers imbibing too much of the national liquor produced nearby.
