Guidelines to the Epidemiology of Weak Associations














Guidelines to the Epidemiology of Weak Associations


Here is a 1987 article from the great Ernst Wynder (1922-1999) author of the first large-scale study to link smoking with lung cancer. In the 1987 article, Wynder discusses the problems of drawing causal connections based on weak association epidemiology. Readers of this page know that weak association epidemiology has long been abused by government regulators, especially the EPA (Read “Scare Pollution” for a thorough treatment of this point). That’s why JunkScience.com has petitioned President Trump to issue standards for the use of epidemiology by regulatory agencies. This article is the introductory one to a 1985 workshop on weak associations published in Preventative Medicine in 1987.
