Did Researchers Really Uncover the Cause of SIDS? – The Scientist

Read article - Eugene E. Nattie, professor emeritus of molecular and systems biology, is quoted in an article about the challenges of communicating nuanced research in the era of social media. Nattie expressed reservations about a study that found a potential link between a biomarker and a greater risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Nattie’s reservations echoed a newsletter by economist Emily Oster that argues that the study has been vastly exaggerated to the point of being misleading.
