Smoking Dieters

Really, this is what they thought they found? That female teenagers who initiate dieting appear at risk for beginning regular smoking?

Hmmm, 21% of the girls were actually overweight but yet 55% were dieters....perhaps, could there be something underlining this? Like perhaps maybe image issues? Did they look at this? Does not look like it to me. Perhaps it was their desire to loose weigth for image issues that also had them increasing in the chance to light up? Just a thought....

These are some of the things that really irk me and give researchers a bad name. Always looking for a simple explanation and ignoring everthing else. You can find a correlation with anything (Statistical), but is it Practical, that's another thing!
