Chocolate, skinny conservatives, and statistics
If eating chocolate doesn’t help you lose weight, as I previously previously blogged, maybe being conservative will. And that’s not even an observational study, the kind that finds statistical links between all sorts of things, such as yogurt and cancer.
Speaking of chocolate and observational studies, a new study links it to reduced incidence of cardiovascular disease and stroke. I think the authors sounded especially guarded in their interpretation, coming on the heels of the fake study above.
