I am concerned that the tenth and eleventh citations in this article are not represented correctly. The line reads, "It is impossible to say whether or not it has any effect on health, as the research to date is of poor quality." This appears very biased and also misrepresents the citations attributed to it. The tenth citation, retrieved from Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviewsdoi:10.1002/14651858.CD004998.pub2. states that there is not enough research done on persons with anxiety disorders. To me, this does not constitute that meditation has no effect on health because that would give the impression that this study was performed on subjects with sound psychological health. Then the eleventh citation, retrieved from "Meditation practices for health: state of the research". https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17764203 does not name Transcendental Meditation. The site only names Mantra meditation. For this reason, I believe it is not a reliable source. I believe the line should be deleted and possibly replaced with another line that is backed by citations and discusses the wide controversy over health enhancement.
