When you follow meditation news in the current media mostly what you find out about is the scientist research that is taking place and being developed about meditation.
Its interesting and encouraging to see that there are scientists working to show the great, beneficial effects of meditation.
One of the limitations of the medical research is that it is measured using physical apparatus – this has its limitations as it can only measure physical matter such as the brain.
Meditation goes a lot further than the physical.
Unfortunately this cannot be proved by scientists and can only be experienced by the meditator.
Modern science is limited to the depth in which can prove the effectiveness of meditation.
The best research that you can do is to gain personal experience through regular practice.
