  2. What concerns me about these “studies” is that they are often little more than surveys turned into observational data. The are not however “experimental data” controlling other conditions. Other risky behavior, environmental conditions, or genetic predisposition don’t seem to be taken into account in a rush to judgment; nor are changes in key components attempted or evaluated as to how they affect the result.

    Conducted with the all scientific integrity of voting for #1 in “American Idol”, they are nevertheless heralded as definitive, and rushed into media prominence and as a dire warning. And while we are told not to worry that the results achieved have no scientific credibility and impact, most fail to recognize that they are used by insurance companies and government regulatory agencies to determine the the next rate guides and mandates.
