I have a PhD and I am in fact a scientist. I would never claim anything is backed by science. In my opinion (not based on science because it’s an opinion) science can show us things but nothing is actually backed by science. Here’s the thing. When you hear “effects 20 out of 1000 people” it’s because its studied and researched using a specific number of people, not every person on the planet and certainly not accounting for who it hasn’t effected yet. Google, really? If you want research studies you’ve gotta go to .edu sites and read scholarly shit. Scientifically speaking, “So like, yeah. There’s that.”

Your article is hysterical and I love it.
