This particular study is very interesting in the way that not only does it present findings, but it also critiques previous research and explains the downfalls of it. Past research studies only went back about two years, but these researchers showed drive to find out more. It correlates a little with the past post about long-term research, and how being patient is key in finding true results. Another interesting part of this study is that it looked at a very broad subject, something that affects hundreds of thousands of people, and something that is very recent. It shows the push popular culture gives to research and how research is forced to keep up with the times.
