Abstract: I will discuss the recent so-called LHCb anomalies, deviations from the Standard Model predictions, in b to s transitions. These anomalies can be explained through New Physics contributions or alternatively through underestimated hadronic effects. Both options will be presented in some detail, in addition to a direct statistical comparison of two global fits to the data based on the two different assumptions.
