Another overblown health study

September 29th, 2009 by Rosa

Via the NY Times Health section, a piece about a new study that finds a correlation between chocolate consumption and increased survival after a heart attack.

Now that I’m getting paid to work in cognitive/neuroscience lab, I think I can call myself a professional scientist of sorts and thus can declare with great authority that correlation does not mean causation.

If it did, then with all the chocolate that I eat, I would get to live forever.
