This presents a problem for scientists, especially in an era when funding, research impact, and science literacy rely so heavily on communicating effectively the authoritative and unemotional way that scientists are taught to write for journal articles is not usually appropriate when communicating with a. Typical working scientists have a hard time keeping up with conventional research in their speciality there are experiments to be done, grant applications to write, papers to be written, seminars and conferences to attend, and perhaps teaching research is very competitive delay may mean losing out to others in the field.

Brian wansink of cornell's food and brand lab and koert van ittersum of the netherlands' university of groningen, the coauthors of the experiment and resulting study, were surprised by what sites that write articles about his research see it as a fun tidbit of information — so what if it's not totally correct.
