dragonchild: News flash: People who eat fried foods at least once a week tend to do a lot of other things that are bad for health at least once a week. Unless you account for that you can blame anything on anything, because the raw data will be there. I could publish a study showing a very high correlation between watching TV and cardiovascular disease but the causal link will be tenuous.

Holy sh*t, I can't believe the statistics dudes missed something that obvious. Your reasoning could revolutionize modern mathematics if you manage to get it to the right people. I understand perfectly what you're saying - it's almost like a hidden factor is "confounding" the link that is being established. You need to talk with some local professors and show them how this works. Fields medals have been granted for less...

We can't overcome our natural desire for foods that are, in general and in large quantities, harmful because they are supposed to be scarce. Welcome to the top of the (fast)food chain.
