Calling BS all over that:
Empirical research - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yeah we know exactly what empirical means, it means "their opinion based on jack diddly squat". As in they may or may not have observed it's effects even though they did not isolate any other factors and were probably influenced by stuff they read in magazines anyway making their "research" invalid.
The funny thing is "research" in the true sense of the word means actual controlled studies under controlled and tested circumstances. The way laymen throw around "research" is almost as bad as the way "overtraining" and "centrol nervous system" is thrown around. Most of the broscience that is passed as "research" is nothing more than a 16 year old kid fanning around the interweb while stopping every now and again to look at porn. That's not research so let's not use fancy words to sugar coat it.
Sorry everyone but that kind of thing really riles me up no end.
