    I looked for the actual analysis, and so far there isn't any. My comment was just on the overall difference between "gut feelings" and actual studies with good methodology and solid conclusions based on data, i.e. "evidence-based medicine."

    It seems like there is always the "no shit, Sherlock" comments when studies come out about things that are understood to be true through conventional wisdom--why did we need a study to tell us that? everyone KNOWS it's true-- but that is not evidence-based. Which is why real studies based on solid methodologies are necessary. In this case, until the actual study with its methodology is published there is no way of deciding its merits or not.
