NUTRITION

Death by Food Pyramid: When Science Is Not What It Seems

Much research is created with less than rigorous experimental conditions (i.e., not controlling other factors; it is impractical to control everything a person eats for long periods of time) and it is correlational in nature. A correlation is just an association between two things. This relationship might have been found by luck (i.e., large samples often find very small but significant relationships as a consequence of the statistical formula). Furthermore, the relationship might exist because of a third variable (e.g., people who drink green tea might be more health conscious, which leads them to drink more tea, but also do other “healthy” things). As a professor of research methods, I never lack good material for teaching critical review of the literature when looking through nutrition research.
