interpretation of the study results

Posted by freidl on 23 Apr 2014 at 11:43 GMT

The most plausible interpretation of the study results would be that persons who perceive themselves as less healthy tend to eat a healthier diet, i.e. less meat, which corresponds to the broad consensus in nutritional science. A reversed causality does not seem plausible at all.

Yeah, this is not the only study in which these authors push their agenda through wilful misinterpretation of bad statistics: http://www.lifescienceglo...
