In an effort to quash misleading claims on social media, the Associated Press spoke with SPH Professor Donald Milton (MIAEH), who dismantled the four claims made in a post on a site called "thewilddoc." 

Dr. Peter Palese, chairman of microbiology at the Mt. Sinai Medical School in New York City and a prominent flu researcher, edited the Milton study for the scientific journal. Dr. Palese said the social media post is a classic example of "shoddy scholarship and should best be ignored."
