I wonder if you would be equally amused by studies funded by the sugar industry?

If the first author was a paid consultant, the second author a lawyer, and none of the authors had any apparent training in advanced statistics, yup, that would be funny.

So how do you know all this about the authors?

I can read.  What's your excuse?

I'm asking where you're reading about the qualifications of the authors.

I said there was no evidence that any of them has advanced training in statistics.  Two are cardiologists and the third is a lawyer.  Are you aware of any evidence that any of them has advanced statistical training?

Are you assuming that anyone affiliated with a law school is a lawyer?

Yes because it would make more sense to assume that he's a statistician







Or a janitor

In the interview, Dr. Jonathan Sackner-Bernstein states that he has only a moderate amount of statistics knowledge.  That's why he also said that he hired a professional academic statistics expert, and everything is easily accessible  on line for those that would question the methods.

So the answer is yes, you're just making incorrect assumptions again based on limited information.

As far as I can tell, he's a law student.

Why is this an important line of questioning?

It's not. I thought you might have had some source about who was doing the study and was hoping for more information.but absent that I'm just annoyed that it's more assumptions without basis presented as fact. I'll drop it

We know who did the study: a paid consultant to Atkins Nutritionals, a law student, and a clinical cardiologist.

If it's not that important, why did you bring it up and why keep it going? And how do you know he's a law student?

David Kanter is definitely a student of law.  After getting his BS he was awarded a juris doctor in 1967.  Mustn't be that good as he is still practicing for nearly five decades.  Maybe he'll get it right sometime soon.

I just said it was funny.  I'm not keeping it going; you keep asking me about it.
