In addition to these, I will add my various ideas and point of view to the above. Research can not be blindly followed as the facts. Research itself only shows certain results in the given study conducted. It can be very useful in finding out correspondences between illness or health and certain factors.

However, research can be sometimes be misleading. As many factors often contribute to chronic illness, it can be difficult to find clear correspondences, especially if the illness itself is caused by multiple factors. In these cases, research can be lacking due to their restriction of looking for a single cause for a specific disease or illness.

I will try to shed light on these factors as I present research and other information on my blog.
