While researching for 'the Monday note', I came across this - the 1986 questionnaire for the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. How would you do recalling average intake for (say) a pat of butter over the past year? What's a pat anyway?!

Looks like a hospital admission form, you know the ones that take forever to fill out since the nurses have to ask all those question orally, and we only really need 10% of the information on it!

Which also adds another layer of bias, the interviewer.

My favorite: "Beef, pork or lamb as a main dish, e.g. steak, roast, ham etc. (4–6 oz.)"

Only the fools at Harvard would put such nonsense on a recall questionnaire.

Just like the Harvard study, this FFQ will not even begin to identify the N6 component of modern diets . Where are all the dips, sauces, ready meals? These days it hardly matters what protein source, practically all processed foods are drowned in soy & seed oil.

Agreed: Even posh chips and dips are drowned in sunflower oil - for example. How can FFQs cope with our eating habits?

It’s a teaspoon - but who on earth would recall every teaspoon of butter even if it mattered?

And the steak is usually eaten alone, while the ribs get smothered in sugary BBQ sauce!
