I'd like to speak with you today about the difference between Association Causation. Often we get caught up on Association. So someone had a heart attack but he didn't smoke, wasn't overweight, cholesterol was okay, and no one thought it would have happened, because we're dealing with associations. Let's put it this way, if I told you that speeding and alcohol were closely linked, in fact, associations to car accidents, we would all agree. But you can speed and consume alcohol and drive and not necessarily have an accident. So they are clearly associated but they're not causative, because every time you drink or every time you speed you would have a car accident if that were causative. When it comes to coronary disease we've got lots of associations we understand, but we don't fully understand the causation.
