A random effects model accounted for variation between studies as this can provide more conservative results than a fixed effects model. 22 The dose-response relation was estimated by using generalised least squares trend estimation, according to the methods developed by Greenland and Longnecker. 23 24 25 We used the two stage generalised least squares trend estimation method, which first estimated study specific slope lines and then combined with studies in which the slopes were directly reported to obtain an overall average slope. 25 Data on the amount of fruit and vegetable consumption, distributions of cases and person years, and hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals were extracted to apply this method.

Untreated stroke survivors had markedly altered performances in both the object recognition test (P = 0.0007) and the Morris water maze (P < 0.0001) tests at day 30 compared with normal gerbils. Many distinguished scientists have pointed to serious flaws in this theory, beginning with the fact that heart disease in America has increased during the period when consumption of saturated fat has decreased. “The diet-heart idea,” said the distinguished George Mann, “is the greatest scam in the history of medicine.”And the chorus of dissidents continues to grow, even as this increasingly untenable theory has been applied to the whole population, starting with lowfat diets for growing children and mass medication with cholesterol-lowering drugs for adults.
