The study judged whether each paper “supported or refuted the link between reduced sodium intake and lower rates of heart disease, stroke, and death” and found that 54% supported the idea, 33% refuted the idea, and 13% were inconclusive. The study also showed that 54% of the participants supported the idea, 33% refuted it and 13% were inconclusive. papers’ authors on either side of the issue were “more likely to cite reports that drew a similar conclusion than to cite reports drawing a different conclusion.” This calls Inquiries were raised about the authenticity of the papers.
