Headline of the Day: Blood, Spit & Burnout

Today’s Headline of the Day comes from a University of Montreal press release:

Simple spit and blood tests might detect burnout before it happens

The press release goes on to say:

Your blood and the level of a hormone in your spit could reveal if you’re on the point of burnout, according to research undertaken by Dr. Sonia Lupien [pictured here, at right] and Robert-Paul Juster of the Centre for Studies on Human Stress of Louis-H. Lafontaine Hospital and the University of Montreal…

It features a small sample (30 people), and makes skillful use of the words MIGHT, COULD, CAN, HYPOTHESIZED, POTENTIAL, and IF, as well as the provocative SPIT.
