The number of ways that observational epidemiology is misinterpreted never ceases to amaze me. I wanted to make a video about this and truly explain in detail healthy user bias and unhealthy user bias, as well as why these two things can be such fatal confounders in this type of study. By contrasting epidemiology from the West and East, this becomes more apparent, and studies done on the UK cohort in this video illustrate that epidemiology seems to be telling us more about how beneficial healthy behaviors like exercise and avoiding alcohol and smoking are rather than eating meat vs vegetables. If you or someone you know has been misled by the mainstream reporting of epidemiology you need to watch and share this video!
