I'm frustrated because my first answerfirst answer got downvoted for what I think is not a good reason.
Sometimes people make claims which you can't debunk with "reputable references", simply because scientists don't go about publishing in peer-reviewed journals papers saying "popular belief X ain't true". Sometimes because they have never even heard of popular belief X, but most of the time because popular belief X is kwatsch, and they don't get research grants for publishing on that.
So what are "reputable references" here?
