Correlation Revelation/chi-squared analysis

Regression and Correlation are two of the most often used and abused tools in research. People are quick to jump to conclusions that if a relationship exists between two variables, then one must cause (causation) the other. There are many reasons why two variables can be related without causality. Please respond to the following

Obesity, adiposity and biostatistical calculations

Obesity is very common in American society and is a risk factor for breast cancer in postmenopausal women. One mechanism explaining why obesity is a risk factor is that it may raise estrogen levels in women. In particular, one type of estrogen, serum estradiol, is a strong risk factor for breast cancer. To better assess these re
