    There comes a point with this sort of research when you get what I think is called an 'embarras de richesse' - too many good things. If they end up finding that hypermobility is associated with every condition they study the likely conclusion is that they are not measuring hypermobility reliably. The great majority of people who research hypermobility do not measure it reliably so it would be no surprise.

    The main concern here is that Neil Harrison is involved. He should know better than to put his name to flaky research. Maybe it will turn out not to be flaky but I sense a case of mille-feuille here.
