The negative reviews here flag Milloy's animus, but what great satire is without it? He gives examples, chapter and verse, for all his critiques. This is a minor masterpiece, unique of its kind.
For a real scientist, this correlation would be the beginning and would require proofs obtained by different independent methods. For the pseudo-scientist, however, this is the end point. As the author points out, it's much easier that way and who's going to know the difference. The American public receives a poor education in math and none in statistics.
I think this is a result of the 'publish or perish' syndrome; an awful lot of garbage is being produced. I think the author did a very good job of pointing out the weaknesses in much of the current 'epidemiology', and I think every lay person should read his book.
