Study Design Issues: Hormone Status and Injuries in Women

Check out this Pubmed summary of a 2002 study from The Journal of Athletic Training that looked at ACL injuries and menstrual status. The commentary section highlights problematic issues of data collection and correlation in these types of studies. I think it would be helpful if major media outlets were a little more careful in the headlines they publish. One small study does not a fact make. However, publicity of such studies can help support unfounded stereotypes or myths that affect society in subtle ways.
