This RT is not an endorsement. This are horrible #InMice experiments that do not induce anything that resembles human depression.
Putting mice in wet, no-bedding, or 45 degrees tilted cages, or immobiling them in a 50 ml tube is inducing severe stress, not depression.
Shame on @institutpasteur for approving this.

I am watching the #Interconnected documentary, episode 1, and - as expected - it is a mix of truth, extrapolated errors, and complete bullshit.
The problem is that it is almost impossible to tell for the audience what statement belongs into which of these categories. (thread)
You can find the episode here on YouTube, but it will only be free for 24h. So save it before it is gone.
The documentary so far consists of a series of interviews with microbiome scientists, MDs, and people with degrees that look like they might have invented themselves. Some patients and writers of self-help books as well.

Inspired by this post from @garyschwitzer, I'm tweeting a mini-storm about all the MISLEADING ANIMAL-BASED HEALTH PR we wade through EVERY SINGLE DAY. PLEASE RT this thread to let the institutions tagged know that their messaging and claims about human treatment are NOT OK!
First up: @UniofNottingham claims "Father's diet could affect long-term health of his offspring." But only IF THE FATHER IS A MOUSE! Please let these researchers know that there's simply no way a single mouse study can "bridge a gap" to human health.
(See Gary's original post at the top of this thread for links to all of the news releases that I reference in this thread.)
