    But the scientific rigor just isnít there yet to be making these big claims

    Does "But the scientific rigor just isnít there yet to be making these big claims" mean "But the scientific rigor just isnít there on which these big claims can be made"?

    --------------------------------
    Lead author of the report Nicholas Van Dam, a clinical psychologist and research fellow in psychological sciences at the University of Melbourne, contends potential benefits of mindfulness are being overshadowed by hyperbole and oversold for financial gain. Mindfulness meditation and training is now a $1.1-billion industry in the U.S. alone. ďOur report does not mean that mindfulness meditation is not helpful for some things,Ē Van Dam says. ďBut the scientific rigor just isnít there yet to be making these big claims.Ē He and his co-authors are also concerned that as of 2015, less than 25 percent of meditation trials included monitoring for potential negative effects of the intervention, a number he would like to see grow as the field moves forward.
