Correlation does not imply causation A controlled study describes the relationship between given behaviors or environmental conditions and health effects in a laboratory setting in which conditions other than those under study are effectively held constant across groups of participants receiving various levels of the experimental condition s. Since it is considered that the only functional difference between groups is the level of experimental condition s received, researchers can strongly infer cause-and-effect relationships from statistically significant associations between experimental condition s and health consequences. Thus, if executed properly, controlled studies have high levels of internal validity. However, such studies often suffer from questionable external validity due to the considerable differences between real-world environments and the experimental context, and the consequent belief that results cannot be generalized beyond that context.
