This is statistics 101. If you cannot know who was excluded from a study and who was included you cannot generalize the findings to a larger group of people. It's also statistics 101 that if you want to determine if you agree with the conclusions that a study has come to you have to have the raw data along with a full description of the study design.

Doctors are trained to be clinicians and often get no education in experimental design and statistics. If the research is flawed they will not be aware of that.
