Default Looks like we can eat out of big bowls again

Brian Wansink, head of the Food and Brand Lab at Cornell, whose work has been widely cited in the media in previous years, has had to resign due to essentially falsifying conclusions from experiments.

His conclusions had a way of going viral, because he pushed researchers to find things that would, so many of us may have had our eating habits affected by his work after hearing a news story that reported them. I know in my house we've tried to eat off of smaller plates (an idea pushed by these kinds of stories) to try and help us eat less. Who knows what else we've internalized from his "findings".

It's a good reminder that science does not work at the same speed as the 24 hour news cycle.
