Others have opined on the results of this data-mining study so I'll refrain except to say this: Anyone who tells you, "These results are nothing to worry about" should always add "unless they apply to YOU."
To recall a parallel situation:
Thalidomide was only a birth-defect problem for an extremely limited demographic group:
- Women who were pregnant and who took thalidomide
This article is clear about the small group of people who should be concerned about the conclusions from the data mining. But, if you're a woman who sustains attacks of Migraine with aura once a week or more often, you're one of those women.
I am one of those women.
