This is what makes me so angry about the "correlation equals causation" people. the first lesson I learned with data like that was "It could be a causes b, or b causes a, or c causes both a and b, or c causes a and b but only when d is present etc etc"

This information does not surprise me at all.

"So are you saying being stressed out about being fat can cause you to be fat?"

I'm sure that's part of the real purpose of the crusade. Either you get thin or you must be fat and sick.

It doesn't care which, in fact I suspect the preference is for the latter.
