CAMBRIDGE, MA-- A new study suggests that reading too many studies is bad for your health.
"There seems to be pretty good evidence at this point that if you spend a lot of time worrying about what the latest study says your health will suffer," said Dr. Ben Dover, a researcher with the Presbyterian Medical Center in Albuquerque.
The results came from 10 different studies that monitored close to 250,000 people.
The researchers found that people who read health studies concerning diet, exercise and alcohol usage were 41 percent more likely to suffer from diabetes, influenza, heart attack, halitosis, anxiety, and black lung disease.
Dr. Dover warns that while the news is negative for survey readers, they should definitely pay attention to this one.
"My grandfather ate and drank whatever he wanted and lived to be 95. Most of these studies are balderdash anyway. Except this one."
