I’ll be honest, the articles I saw were posted on the online versions of numerous rags such as The Sun and The Mirror. Not exactly the most believable papers in the first place. I also recently saw an article that was entitled “Period cramps are as painful as a heart attack” – (to be honest, there is some truth to this, but the articles is just written in the most RIDICULOUS way!).

Its just finding the right balance!
