If you've ever felt like you had a handle on the evidence about a certain medical topic only to read a headline telling you science now says the opposite, you aren't alone. 

But science isn't about headlines. It's about evaluating the evidence to decide what's real, and it doesn't always conform to what we want. But that doesn't stop the media, (and maybe some journals), from selectively reporting the research that will generate the most buzz.

Today we talk about this issue and ideas that are being discussed to help be sure all the evidence, including the unremarkable evidence, is adequately reported.
