Things I find hilarious: Relying on the (mildly) cognitively impaired for accurate self-reporting

Also, bordering on idiotic.

“Participants reported the amount of calories they ate or drank in a food questionnaire”

I mean, really? Come on, we can do better.

“The odds of having mild cognitive impairment more than doubled for people in the highest calorie-consuming group reporting the highest calorie consumption compared with people in the lowest calorie-consuming group reporting the lowest calorie consumption.”
