What is Behind the Headlines?

There's a great section on the nhs website which breaks down the scientific studies behind news stories. It gives details of the studies and looks at how they have been reported and also assesses their validity and reliability. It's pretty interesting stuff and shows how the media love to build flash bang headlines out of some studies which maybe don't actually prove that much. It's worth a look.
