I think Dr. Ioannidis's statement that "instead they track easily measurable health markers such as cholesterol levels, blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and meta-experts have shown that changes in these markers often don't correlate as well with long-term health as we have been led to believe." is erroneous. These markers have definitely been shown to cause ill health down the road...it is crazy to say they don't indicate health risk down the road...what he should have said is that the benefits from certain vitamins etc are so small (ie changing these health marker numbers so minimally) that they some may not have a measurable impact on ones health in the future. If you lower your blood sugar, cholesterol or BP substantially, it has been well documented that you will advert future health problems. I would like your opinion on this. Thanks.
