the study showed correlation, not causation, but it was presented as causation.

Exactly, and that is what I took issue with. But many people here don't want to hear rationality, they want to get applause from the cheering section.

I can show a correlation between a high income and cigar smoking, but it doesn't mean if I start smoking cigars my income will go up.
