Einstein in the Media

The BBC Radio 4 program More or Less, interviews Paul Marantz, M.D., M.P.H., about a widely reported study in the British Medical Journal that found “an apple a day” was as effective as statins in preventing death. Dr. Marantz asserts that the journal’s publicity for the paper, published as part of the BMJ’s traditionally lighthearted Christmas issue, oversimplifies the issue and misleadingly compares the results of rigorous clinical trials for statins with much weaker observational data about food intake. Dr. Marantz came to the attention of the BBC as a result of a post he authored for Einstein’s blog, The Doctor’s Tablet. Dr. Marantz is associate dean for clinical research education and professor of clinical epidemiology & population health and of clinical medicine.
