Commented on: Doctoring Data

Dr Malcolm Kendrick’s entry in Wikipedia has been deleted. Hitler’s is still there, as are Stalin’s and Chairman Mao’s, but Kendrick’s has been deleted. He must, therefore, have done something very bad indeed–and he has. He has shown how drug companies manipulate data.


Consider Pfizer’s claim that Lipitor (atorvastatin) “reduces risk of heart attack by 36%.” How do Pfizer construct such a claim?


To reduce the story to its essence, imagine a trial in which, over a number of years, a thousand people take a placebo and another thousand people take Lipitor. Now imagine that, in the placebo group, 30 people develop heart attacks. So their risk of getting the disease over those years is 3%.

Now imagine that, in the Lipitor group, 19 people develop heart attacks. Ie, on Lipitor, someone’s chances of developing a heart attack has fallen to 1.9%. The risk has fallen by 1.1%.


If you’re trying to sell Lipitor, claiming a 1.1% fall in the risk of heart attacks is unexciting. If 97% of people are not going to develop heart attacks anyway, and if Lipitor has significant side effects, then an awful lot of folk will simply trust to Mother Nature and trust they’ll be one of the 97% and skip the drug. And your stockholders will be unhappy.


But if your company has a PR department, it’ll note that two numbers have emerged from the study, namely that the risk of developing a heart attack is 3% and that Lipitor has reduced it by 1.1%. From which a third number can be calculated, for 1.1 is 36% of 3. So an actual risk reduction of 1.1% can described as a *relative* risk reduction of 36%, and Lipitor “reduces risk of heart attack by 36%.” Which will make your stockholders happy, because which patient wouldn’t want to reduce their risk of a heart attack by a third?


But wait. Not all heart attacks are fatal, and people can die from an awful lot of things: so, what does Lipitor do to overall mortality? After all, the JUPITER study (the ‘Justification for the Use of statins in Prevention: an Intervention trial Evaluating Rosuvastatin’ study) found that Rosuvastin, like Lipitor, reduced the numbers of heart attack and strokes–but the heart attacks that did ensue were more dangerous. Consequently, cardiovascular mortality on Rosuvastin *did not fall.* Rosuvastin reduced cancer mortality, but as Kendrick notes, that finding has not been reproduced.


Equally, in the Lipitor study, the difference in overall mortality between the placebo and Lipitor groups failed to reach statistical significance (p=0.16, Sever et al, 2003, Lancet, 361: 1149-1158). So, Lipitor might have been advertised as reducing “the risk of heart attack by 36%,” but it didn’t extend life.


Which is another worry of Kendrick’s. We look to statins for extra years of life, but doctors do not tell their patients how many: doctors do not tell their patients how many extra years or even months of life they might expect on taking statins. Patients with cancer are routinely told how particular therapies might extend their lives by so many years or months, but patients on statins are not told this. Why not? Well, it seems that statins apparently provide only extra days–not years, let alone months–of life.


Statins do, however, generate side effects. Sometimes really quite unpleasant ones such as severe muscle pain and diabetes. But we don’t know how many side effects they generate, nor how severely they damage patients, because the Cholesterol Triallists Collaboration, which is based at Oxford University and which is the central repository of the findings from the 30 or so large statin trials, keeps those data secret: almost all statin clinical studies are funded by the companies that market them, and the companies oblige the Cholesterol Triallists Collaboration to not release the information.


Malcolm Kendrick has chronicled other misleading stratagems from the world of medical science. What about the trials that show that cancer screening saves lives? Well, screening–cervical screening, for example–will pick up cancers early. But if you define ‘cure’ as a five-year survival rate, a patient whose cancer is diagnosed early will, all other things being equal, more likely survive for five years than one whose cancer is diagnosed later. Screening, in short, can look great in statistics while actually saving no lives.


Ever since John Ioannidis at Stanford published his iconic 2005 paper ‘Why most published research findings are false,’ we’ve increasingly understood that most published research findings are indeed false. Their falsities can arise from an array of biases, one of which is funding bias, and–as Malcolm Kendrick has chronicled–almost all the clinical studies on cholesterol and statins have been funded by industry. Not surprisingly, therefore, they’ve looked at the products of industry and found them good.


Kendrick gives a good talk and he writes a good book (three actually) but he must be seen as the star witness for the prosecution rather than the judge. Between the drug companies’ assertion that up to 40% of adults should take statins, and Kendrick’s assertion that practically no-one should, must lie the optimal figure for statin use. How to find it?


We obviously can’t rely on the drug companies to tell us, but we can’t allow a solitary primary care physician, however brilliant, to tell us either. Public health science of this importance must be a collective process, and perhaps the government or (preferably) one of the major foundations such the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation or the Wellcome Trust might take the lead on creating a disinterested, exhaustive but transparent trial or set of trials.


And they might call their program the KENDRICK program for Kalculating the ENDothelial RIsCK study. Which might put that name back in Wikipedia.

Want to thank all the coaches for spending the two days teaching the material and providing feedback to not only me but my colleagues as well during the workouts. Overall great experience!! L1 is a must for those not only interested in coaching/training but just to get a better sense of what CrossFit truly is. #GeauxTigers

M /45/ 135 lbs

I actually did this WOD last week.

I did this using a hex bar. Not sure if I was supposed to kind of max out each set? I did not.

15-135 (light, I could have easily gone heavier)

12-165 (still light but felt fine.)

9-195 (felt super solid)

6-235 (felt good)

3-265 (felt good)

3-285 (felt good and still explosive & fast)

3-315 (this one set felt good but not quite as explosive)

post WOD, I ran about 2.5 miles with the dog in the woods.

First time in a LONG time I tried a real weighted WOD.

Fun and glad. I will do these again soon. Been a while and was fun and want to really start adding these back in.

From 170lbs, +20lbs per round:


15 @ 170lbs

12 @ 190lbs

9 @ 210lbs

6 @ 230lbs

3 @ 250lbs


All sets unbroken with continues motion. I did not release the bar nor shift my feet, and I maybe could have gone a little heavier. But my grip nearly gave out on the last 2 rounds.

Decided to follow the same rep scheme for bench press during DL rest periods. Went a bit lighter on BP because I’m sure that something will come up later this week that will make me regret my decision to do bench today.


DL: 15x185; 12x205; 9x235; 6x265; 295 total fail; 3x275

BP: 15x125; 12x140; 9x145; 6x150; 3x165


Result: Just about emptied the tank on DL; had more in me in on BP, which was fine.

Great video. Dr Kendrick is a brave man and CrossFit has often backed/presented such voices going way back ... not because they are "contrarians" but because they provide valid arguments to the discourse about "the ills of modern medicine and the wilful abuse of the public’s trust in science" that is worthy of further study.

Having said that, hope to also see Dr. John Ioannidis (Stanford University) in a future CrossFit Health event lecture, whose gravitas is a given and who similarly identifies bias/problems in published researched findings.

16 mile bike ride this morning; 25 minutes going out, with a glorious tailwind. 39 minutes on the return leg, with a nasty headwind.


215-230-250-265-285#. Had at least 5 more pounds in the tank with each lift. To keep in mind next time.

Intended Stimulus

.

Full-send-it-fun-AF day! If you did 190606, then you know what you are in for. We want the heaviest loads you can handle with good mechanics on each of the different sets, and we want them unbroken. Just like we said four days ago, remember Rippetoe's advice: "don't be pigheaded". If your spine starts rounding in the middle of a lift, drop that bar! Deload a little and try again. If you did 190606, use what you learned that day to better guide your plan today. If you struggle with deadlifts, today is an awesome day to work on them. Focus on the aspect of your deadlift you need to improve. Choose a drill that will help you develop that aspect, but that you can handle. Start with a heavy dose of reps, the sets of 15 and 12 here will be ideal. And then keep adding load while decreasing reps as long as you are able to sustain the aspect you want to develop. Athletes learning how to deadlift can use option 2.



FULL SEND IT!



OPTION 1

This is a good option for athletes that have control of the movement, but for whom the set up position is a struggle due to flexibility, or motor control issues. Choose one of the movements below.



15-12-9-6-3 reps

trap-bar deadlifts

elevated deadlifts (set your bar on top of some plates)

double kettlebell deadlifts

OPTION 2

This option is for athletes learning how to deadlift or fixing their movement pattern.

All done for quality

5 sets

10 seated good mornings

10 sumo deadlifts from seating

10 slow descent single KB deadlifts

rest 2-3 minutes between sets

then

5 sets

5 conventional deadlifts

rest 1:30 between sets

Globo scale: AsRxed. If needed use pads under the plates to reduce noise l. If no barbell available use dumbbells and do 1 leg stiff legged deadlifts in the same set schema, ascending weight, alternating legs.

THANK YOU to the staff at my Level 1 this weekend in North Charleston! My current Level 1 expires in July, and I had to renew, unfortunately for me being 30 weeks pregnant...living in the hot south! Chuck was THE MAN going above and beyond making sure I was ok all weekend, and providing helpful accommodations as needed including keeping the loud fans on during lecture and making sure I wasn’t going too fast doing thrusters. ;). Thanks to Chuck and the North Charleston crew (you too especially Lindsay, and pretty sure Luke was my #1 cheerleader!) for helping make it a good weekend for me. The course was a great refresher to for me as a trainer as I head back to my affiliate tomorrow night to lead my athletes. Thanks, y’all!

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT:

We always do a hype post of sorts before our Summer session, and this video mashup is probably the coolest thing that's been posted on our site. Very unrelated to deadlifts, but hopefully you don’t mind me sharing.

http://championsclub.squarespace.com/home/2019/6/9/summer-of-100.html

(link is w/f safe)


I SHOULD TRY THIS RX’D IF: my technique allows for going heavy on the last few sets


ORGANIC SCALES:

Strength — skip the 15, 12, and 3; do all sets of 9 and 6.

Stamina — skip everything 9 and below and do 15s and 12s repeated. Or if you wanted to work on stamina with heavier weight just set a 2-minute time cap with your heavy sets and do as many reps as possible in that time frame

Endurance — don’t allow for full recovery between sets

Flexibility — stand on plates or some other elevated surface


NEUROLOGICAL SCALES:

Coordination — make it cleans instead of deadlifts

Accuracy — take a dive into the confusing world of percentages

Agility — coordination scale, or do sets of 21 at lighter weights and see how fast you can do them

Balance — shoes off, slow motion sets — and shifting on the feet means the rep does not count


GROUP VERSION: I can see this going a lot of different ways. I might start with a 1:00 time cap and see how it looks. My goal by the end of the session would be for people’s legs and abs to be fried. So whatever it takes for that to happen.


WARMUP:

Jump rope — always

Hip extension — deadlift prep

GHD sit-up — I mean, if we’re going to be on the GHD anyway… and we need to work on belly bracing

Pull-up — spend time hanging overhead

[insert thing you suck at]


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL (1=REST DAY, 10=PR-DRIVEN FGB): 8. The grip factor here might make it a little easier than back squats. But I wouldn’t be too concerned with people losing grip; let them reset and finish the set off right instead of rounding or rushing trying to keep grip.

for the strength sclae, why skip the 3 ?

Chris Sinagoga
June 10th, 2019 at 12:38 pm

I personally think you could get more out of doing 6 in terms of developing a strength that would apply to a regular metcon workout.

Sebastien Fitzpatrick
June 10th, 2019 at 11:16 pm

3 reps are still going to develop higher max strength. If your goal is metcon strength, then why scale out the 15 and 12?

Chris Sinagoga
June 11th, 2019 at 1:00 am

I hear you. I had some of the old CrossFit Football workouts in mind that would be something like 5 rounds of: 3 deadlifts, 50-yard sprint, rest 1:00.

Comment URL copied!
Chris Sinagoga
June 11th, 2019 at 1:45 am

If you are going to emphasize the strength portion of a deadlift in a workout, it would usually come in sets of 2-9 reps.


I think 3 is a little on the low end of reps unless you are going at a slow tempo. For testing purposes, 1-3 reps seems pretty good. For "strength" building purposes, I think it would be good to go a little more than 3 reps. 6, 7, 8, or 9 reps would seem like a good middle ground between a CFFB kind of workout and a 21-15-9 main site workout.


In reality, it probably doesn't matter nearly as much as we think it does, though.
