The formula for a catchy news subject

Something something something harmful something something something studies suggest


Which incidently is the same formula for good starwars dialogue.

"Something something something Dark Side Something something something Jedi's"
source: Family Guy.

Don't bother offering any 'actual proof' to back up your claims all you have to do to make something catchy is add the words 'studies suggest' to the end of your news.

Take this real life example:
Eating a poor diet when pregnant or breastfeeding may cause long-lasting health damage to the child, animal studies suggest.


source: BBC News

and BTW did they really need to study this to find this out? You are what you eat. So if you eat crap your going to feel like crap.
