Study conundrum

In a recent New York Times Magazine article, blogger Gretchen Reynolds cited a fascinating study on female cyclists who, she admits, were added as participants almost as an "after thought" – no surprise here! Part of the role as an editor is to sift through the latest exercise science research, and truth be told, there is endless data on men and not so much on women. We are constantly looking at data and asking ourselves as editors: Were only men studied? After all, it's only recently that women know that heart attacks present themselves differently in females than they do in men; so too did researchers find differences in the way protein reacts in female and male cyclists. As Reynolds says in her blog, we need to demand more research on female athletes. What do you think?
