    why but?

    "Hand reflexology is used because it is effective for a myriad of both general health and specific hand concerns. Research reveals some of the story, but people in real life use reflexology to address their health concerns."

    To my understanding, "but" is used to link 2 ideas that are contrary to each other. In this sentence, however, "research reveals some of the story" doesn't seem to contradict "people in real life use reflexology to address their health concerns". Why is "but" used here?

    Re: why but?

    I would not have used "but" in that sentence. You're right, the writer is not connecting the sentence very well by using the word "but".
