Description

This is a network of 14 systematic reviews on the salt controversy and their included studies. Each edge in the network represents an inclusion from one systematic review to an article. Systematic reviews were collected from Trinquart (Trinquart, L., Johns, D. M., & Galea, S. (2016). Why do we think we know what we know? A metaknowledge analysis of the salt controversy. International Journal of Epidemiology, 45(1), 251–260. https://doi.org/10.1093/ije/dyv184 ).
