Har du ørt om et par nye kontroversielle studier, blant annet forskning bestilt av reklameorganet til norsk kjøttbransjen, Matprat, eller det såkalte opplysningskontoret for egg og kjøtt?
En av lignende studier er omtalt på nettsiden WebMD. Sitert intervju med Walter Willet i WebMD:
“It’s the most egregious abuse of data I’ve ever seen,” says Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, who was among the signers of the letter. “There are just layers and layers of problems.”
The papers gathered data from existing studies to analyze the links between eating red and processed meat and life-threatening conditions like cancer, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. They found that the evidence was too weak to say for sure if there was a link. The articles included five meta-analyses — or studies of studies — and reviews of existing data plus a set of guidelines. NutriRECS, which describes itself as “an independent group with clinical, nutritional and public health content expertise,” produced the studies. An editorial about the findings accompanied the articles.
