I always like to remember the Nature reproducibility paper when hearing about things like this -> 1,500 scientists lift the lid on reproducibility | Nature[^]

On the whole individual scientific breakthroughs tend to be quite small, so I tend to be on the skep[tical side when hearing about this sort of thing.
Bearing in mind that scientists survive from grants and competition for grant money is fierce, it's always good to be skeptical when claims are made that are not backed by easily reproducible evidence.
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
