Some nutrition and diet studies may overstate results
“Whether it was a private foundation or government entity or for-profit organization, funded studies generally had in our study, less overstatements of results by authors,” Menachemi said. If researchers are overstating their results, the media is probably overstating them too, he added. “I think it’s overwhelming for the average person out there who is bombarded with so much information and frequently he or she doesn’t always have the scientific tools available to be able to determine how much of it do I really need to take in and change my practices and how much of this is just interesting information,” he said. Overstating study results can cause problems for professionals as well as the general public, researchers said. “I think the study was very enlightening, for sure, and frankly I think the authors have brought attention to an issue that needs to be addressed both within the scientific community as well as within the media,” dietician Joy Dubost told Reuters Health. Dubost is a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and wasn’t involved in the new study.
