Re: Brits aren't the only ones doing dumb researches

I think what it shows is akin to saying:

It's not that Cigarette smokers have a higher rate of lung cancer. But that lung cancer victims have a high rate of smoking. i.e., that the same thing that causes lung cancer also causes them to want to smoke.
