The discrepancies observed between these two study designs are not easily resolved. Methodological limitations of each are generally recognized but in the context of lifestyle, the understanding of the issues may be critical in giving each their appropriate weight. Measurement problems and confounding of observational studies can be substantial. Limitations in clinical trials include timing and duration of the intervention. Additional efforts such as those pursued by Prentice and colleagues60,61 and others76 to analyze observational study data using the approach employed for clinical trial analyses provide some perspective on methodologic factors that may explain these differences.
