This morning we're packed with slots on 'research' that is 'contradictory'. Oily fish, TV on kids...

And what, exactly, is the poor viewer (or in this case concerned parent) to make of it: don't pay attention to the thing we brought to your attention in the first place.

Nice one.

Plot. Lost. The.
