3 thoughts on “Stan Young: Negative Findings in Epidemiology”

  1. The trap which occurs when science is bent to support a priori political correctness.

    Meta-analysis can have value but the conditions and pre-assumptions used have to be carefully accounted for. When authors attempt to cast a wide net and use large numbers of questionable studies then conclusions are virtually meaningless.

    I feel that for epidemiological studies MA is useful to suggest further controlled studies not to make final conclusions.
