|WOD:||Complete as many reps as possible in 12 minutes of:|
1 strict pull-up, 2 push-ups, 3 squats
2 strict pull-ups, 4 push-ups, 6 squats
3 strict pull-ups, 6 push-ups, 9 squats
|Each round add 1 rep to the pull-ups, complete double that number of push-ups and three times that number of squats. Start at a higher round if you think it will allow you to complete more reps in the 12 minutes—e.g., 5-10-15, then 6-12-18, then 7-14-21, etc., or 10-20-30, then 11-22-33, then 12-24-36, etc.|
Post starting point, finishing point and total reps completed to comments.

Mike Eades comment: The Denise Minger piece completely misses the point, which is that it doesn’t matter if there is still a relationship between fat intake a death from heart disease when all the countries are counted. These kinds of studies of entire populations are called observational studies, and they are absolutely worthless in terms of determining causality. Denise goes to great length in her piece to ‘prove’ that there really is an association between fat intake and death, but it doesn’t matter because the notion that fat intake causes cardiac death can’t be proved with an observational study. These kinds of studies are trash, or rubbish as you would call them. It’s difficult for people to understand because there often are correlations in these kinds of studies, but they’re meaningless. The first graph of the Keys’ data you showed, the one with only six countries, was cherry picked to make the correlation appear even stronger, but it still is observational data, thus meaningless.
I’ve attached the famous Yerushalmy and Hilleboe paper that put Keys over the edge. Had this paper attacking him not been published, Keys would probably have gone on to other things, but since his famously large ego was so violently punctured, he made it his life’s work to ‘prove’ that fat, more specifically saturated fat, caused heart disease, i.e., the lipid hypothesis.

Gary Taubes coment: Smith and Pinckney may have been the first people to critically, methodically examine the evidence in support of the diet-heart hypothesis and the low-fat dogma that was taking over the country back when they wrote their monumental two-volume report. I used it when I was researching Good Calories, Bad Calories 20 years later, and went through much the same learning curve. By that I mean, I had begun investigating public health in the early 1990s because physicists I had worked with on my previous books urged me to get involved. They had the occasion to review the epidemiologic data in support of the idea that electromagnetic fields from power lines caused cancer and had been stunned -- dumfounded, as Smith and Pinckney might have said -- by the lack of rigor and the dismal understanding of science demonstrated by the researchers themselves. In particular, that epidemiologists would make biased observations, cherry pick the data to fit their preconceptions, and then present the associations observed as implying a causal relationship when no such causality could be inferred. My first articles on public health issues (first for The Atlantic and then the journal Science) delved into precisely these questions and I, too, was dumbfounded. I had spent the better part of a decade learning about the level of rigor and skepticism needed to establish reliable knowledge (to "not fool yourself and you're the easiest person to fool," as the Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman put it), and this was considered a luxury by epidemiologists -- too hard to do -- and so unnecessary. Much of the discipline still feels this way: That associations that emerge from these epidemiologic surveys can be used to infer causality when, well, they simply can't.
This was the kind of pathological science (the "science of things that aren't so," as the Nobel Laureate chemist Irving Langmuir memorably defined it) that Keys was doing and Smith and Pinckney were documenting. Yes, Keys study was a landmark study because nobody had ever done such a huge, multi-country study before. But it was also landmark in that it pioneered the practice, standard operating procedure still today, of overinterpreting associations as evidence of causal relationships. Russell and Pinckney were dead on in their summary of the value of this study and how it was embraced foolishly by the public health establishment. What's more, Keys stacked the deck in doing his study by choosing his seven countries in advance in such a way that he predetermined what they would find. There's a reason why researchers randomize study subjects, or select them at random, even when the subjects are entire nations or populations within those nations. It serves the purpose that shuffling cards does in a poker game and prevents precisely this type of deck stacking. Had Keys chosen, for instance, France and Switzerland for two of his seven countries, instead of, say, Japan and Greece, he would have come up with an entirely different conclusion -- in this case, that consuming saturated fat is beneficial. There would have been no French paradox and perhaps we would not have had to live with the tragically misguided diet-heart hypothesis that this "landmark" study helped advance and the low-fat-is-a-healthy-diet dogma that resulted.
Yes, neither Smith nor Pinckney were hotshot academics with Ivy League imprimaturs, but they were good scientists nonetheless. If nutritionists today took this kind of rigorously skeptical look at the evidence, we might actually work our way out of this fix. As it is, it's left up to journalists like myself and the working practitioners like Smith and Pinckney who want to make their patients healthier, regardless of the advice we're getting from our governments and health organizations.
