“Education is not learning of fact, but the training of the mind to think critically” - Albert Einstein
The ability to think critically using logic and reasoning as our guides is the basis of every decision we make on a daily basis— it’s also the foundation for research and science.
Just because we can’t currently measure something, or don’t have a study to show something, does it mean that it should be dismissed? Ignored? Invalidated?
It’s easy to find a study to support an already biased opinion. It’s easy to hand pick a hyper focused population study/research that supports a given position.
SCIENCE is a tool and should be used as such.
It’s useful for allowing us to form principals, test specific hypotheses, and draw conclusions from the result.
A lot of research emphasizes on one specific topic, without much concern for the bigger picture of things. Not entirely a bad thing, but… The specific results of studies must be carefully used to paint the bigger picture.
Don’t get stuck comparing apples to oranges, just because your favorite influencer/fitness personality says something should be done as such.
