First of all thank you so much for your articles. As an engineer (and a hopeless skeptic myself) I find your information absolutely fascinating and extraordinarily helpful due to their practical and data-driven nature.

Mary-Ann

you offer two important services via your blog.

First, you have taken the time to explain — in understandable ways — conditions, testing, etc. that impact real people. Knowledge can be so reassuring — it is the unknown that terrifies our hearts (sometimes quite literally!).
Second and maybe even more important, you are training people to think critically.
