If you follow dietary news, by now, you have heard about the study that compares egg consumption to cigarette consumption.  My original plan was just to ignore this study but I have been getting questions in the office.   So here goes.  The study out of the University of Toronto is another observational study.   You may recall that we learned about observational studies here, here, and here.

If you look at how this study was designed, you could have picked “celery” as your food item and you would have concluded “celery” causes heart attacks. Now I am going to go finish my omelette….
