OK, on a very few occasions, the big companies have not been as careful as they should. But this is publicly funded research and experience tells me this will have been scrutinised to within an inch of its life. Please don't waste all that effort of all those scientists - let them collect the data, only then can we get some answers. It's great research, too.
