Yep but with the push to publish or perish and editors wanting to publish unique and interesting findings it's not hard to imagine that studies are rushed, bias can enter into them or some may even fudge results since negative findings aren't generally published. Of course, when these studies are used as the basis of making treatment decisions for example, this can be a big problem.
