If it's a finding from a reputable scientific study then it's not woo...? hmm

No link to the paper though.

I think the key is the phrase "we need to study it further".

Initial findings. Nothing conclusive and no explanation. Just journalists making a headline.

Maybe for some people but my ds was 10 weeks early and I ate lots of garlic.

We eat loads of garlic an both my dc were prem.

The only thing that would have made any difference for me would have been having the HPV vaccine as a teenager.
