More ? health journalism on ABC: "Fountain of Youth?"

Posted By


When a study appeared in JAMA earlier this week pointing to an association between circulating levels of omega-3 fatty acids with a change in telomere length 5 years later (if you really care about this stuff, you can look up the study), many news organizations jumped on it. Another omega-3 fatty acid story!!!

One friend referred to this as “making a biological mountain out of a mole hill.”

Oh, you mean, like ABC and Diane Sawyer leading into the story with one of Jon Stewart’s least favorite TV ploys – the question mark graphic or tease.

Fountain of youth? You’d have to stay tuned to learn that the answer is “no.”
