Neuromuscular Specialist?

Hello again everyone. I haven't posted in awhile but wanted to get some feedback on a potential referral.

2003 study: dietary extremes and breast cancer mortality

moderation once again key.
makes sense to me that while plenty of people may need to dial certain things back, others can actually need more.

2017 viewpt: misuse of meta analysis in nutrition research

inclusion criteria important!

The Misuse of Meta-analysis in Nutrition Research

Food Sources of Saturated Fat and the Association With Mortality: A Meta-Analysis

Pooled relative risk estimates demonstrated that ...

Association Between Serum Zinc Levels and the Risk of Parkinson’s Disease: a Meta-Analysis
https://link.springer.com/article/10.10 ... 017-0941-2
