Unit 2 of the Study Guide explains the strengths and weaknesses of different types of research.

If you discuss how an excess of substance S in the diet increases the risk of disease Y, then refer to evidence that demonstrates this. Be sure to evaluate the extent to which this evidence is research-based. For example many claims for diet- disease relationships are based on mere speculation, some are based on epidemiological evidence, and some are based on strong evidence from randomized, controlled trials.
