  • Description: Gorst-Rasmussen et al respond to Imamura and Jacques' dietary pattern analysis. Gorst-Rasmussen et al challenge a fundamental premise in Immamura and Jacques' discussion that sparsity is not a natural property of a dietary pattern because a dietary pattern should reflect the cumulative effect of all foods. Furthermore, they say diets remain individual-specific constructs, whereas dietary patterns are population-based and usually observational and attempts to provide a universal, isolated understanding of the concept of a dietary pattern will lead to subjective and ambiguous definitions at best.
