The reductionist model of nutrition doesn't take into account the real underlying physiological processes and fails to account for how far a particular food might be from its natural origin and what those processes have done to the food in question. Soliciting participants to self-report on (perceived) food consumption and then rates of some condition will yield nonsense no matter what level of mathematical sophistication is applied to the data. These are lazy studies that are just too many levels of indirection away from actual knowledge to be of any use.
