’Jaw-dropping’ changes seen in brain scans of US embassy workers in Cuba

Brain scans of U.S. Embassy employees who reported falling ill while serving in Havana, Cuba, have revealed significant differences from a control group. A lead researcher called the differences ’pretty jaw-dropping at the moment’. However, it was yet not clear if the brain patterns directly translated into meaningful health problems.

Jumping to conclusions very fast in the comments section. Read the later part of the Reuters article, starting with "Some researchers have questioned whether the study findings are significant." If you know anything about science and statistics, significance in this context is VERY, very important. It is the difference between relevant and non-relevant. I re-linked the Reuters article below. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-cuba-usa-diplomats-health/scans-show-changes-to-brains-of-injured-havana-u-s-embassy-workers-idUSKCN1UI20D?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews
