Individual studies are not reliable enough and cannot be prescriptive. Disseminating their outcome will cause confusion, convince people that science is contradictory and will be a source of fake news. Science which should be disseminated is based on accrued wisdom derived from a corpus of research spanning several years and engaging numerous, independent laboratories. Showing the power of solid evidence will increase our understanding and wellbeing and will establish a rational way for disseminating scientific knowledge.
