Several groups of researchers conducted experiments to study how students’ diets affected their performance in school. Researchers asked students to record what they ate every day for a year. The findings suggested that students who ate a higher amount of vegetables as compared to protein tended to have better grades. What can the researchers validly claim based on these findings?
