Only half of all published research is trustworthy, according to Scientific American (2014), New York Times (2016), National Academy of Sciences (2017), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2017). Major criticism focuses on the inability to replicate the reported findings due to imperfections discovered in the research methodology, study design, measurement protocol, or application to daily living and clinical practice.
