Bad Science (possibility of)
Reader smartly challenges interpretation of scientific study about chewing gum aiding concentration.  (however, I heard of a similar study several years earlier, so their study might have tried more to explain an earlier study's finding, but still smart and worth reading).

Likewise, another study possibly confuses causation with correlation, but it's hard to tell as the article is full of ax-grinding.
