Depressingly depressing.

Not the fact that someone's done some research and has found out something out. That's cool. That's always cool. The fact that a small, hard to replicate molecule with unmeasurably low concentrations has an indirect effect on metabolism in mice gets the head line: 'Miracle molecule' in beer is good for you". That's depressing. Okay, so the herald didn't write the headline about beer. It didn't do any background checking though.The original article doesn't even mention beer. The original press release says the compound might be found in beer. Why the hell even mention beer?

Seriously. I know the herald doesn't really constitute serious journalism but this just makes me want to go find whoever was in charge of putting this article up and poor beer down their throat. Until they drown.
