"This lack of placebo makes designing calorie-containing nutrient studies pretty tough. But it makes food studies even more challenging. Most randomized controlled trials in nutrition only have funding for 2 arms, so what is the appropriate comparator arm for our commodity group (Dairy/Meat/Egg/Cereal) funded trials? The lack of a placebo has made food focused studies so easy to slant in the direction of whatever results you care about (compare anything to a high sugar/high refined carb/high satfat diet and you can make most foods look "good")."
