    So the trial did not give the result we expected but we will twist the results so that we can still say our favourite treatment can do good.

    Because following simple recommendations for physical activity does not earn us anything.

    Age cohort of 70-77 is perhaps not representative of the population. And ... the control group exercised ‘in accordance with national guidelines’. So there was not a no-exercise control group.
