@meredithw @bibliolater @science Good point, as a medical layperson I would have not thought of that. Since the causal interpretation seems mechanistically plausible, it is tempting. I have yet to read the full paper but the abstract is more carefully phrased than the reporting about the paper. I wonder if one can factor out negative correlation somehow in study design or analysis. 1/
