Someone linked this article on facebook today. Looking at it I think it is very likely bunk (also called woo, apparently?), and not just because it links the Daily Mail as its one-and-only source.

Should I, in an effort to combat the internet's ignorance, post a question here so someone with more free-time/knowledge than I can confirm my suspicions, or would that be considered . . . impolite?

If you're genuinely interested in the answer, go ahead and ask it.

Worst case, you make us debunk a false claim therefore making the Internet a better place. Best case, you realize you were wrong to dismiss it and now possess the correct information.
