To the Editor This letter is in response to the Green et al article,1 published online on August 19, 2019. While the results of the study by Green et al1 may support hypothesis testing, they should not be used to make public health recommendations. This is especially true given the number of limitations noted by the researchers themselves. In addition, we would like to raise awareness of several important methodologic omissions from the article.
