Description: Stars in Nutrition and Cancer

The objective of this lecture:
  • To present theoretical arguments regarding the relative presence of false positive and false negative associations in epidemiological investigation
  • To discuss the factors that affect the ratio of false positives to false negatives
  • To present empirical evidence on the ratio of false positives to false positives and lessons from – omics agnostic research as they may apply to non-genomic exposures, such as nutrition
  • To present empirical evidence on the small magnitude of epidemiological associations and the implications for discovery and application of new epidemiological knowledge
