I wonder – what do Dr. Ko and Dr. Glazier think about these results? Dear Reader: You’re referring to the results of a study performed by Harvard researchers, published in December 2016 in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. To say that it caused a bit of a stir is an understatement. Our colleague Dr. Ashley gave his take on these findings yesterday. Our reactions follow later.

Though it ran up $171 million in ticket sales in China, “The Great Wall” pulled in $18.1 million in its North American debut over Presidents Day weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
