Facebook Blamed For Rise In Syphilis

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/24/facebook-syphilis-link-si_n_511683.html



The Buzz: According to a report published in a slew of publications--including the Telegraph, Sun, and Daily Mail--British health experts have linked Facebook to a rise in syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease, in the UK.


Linked? Perhaps.

Correlation does no suggest causation. Think Stat 101.

If we really go there, we wind up suggesting that churches cause bars, which makes a lot of sense to me.

Why?

The number of bar and the number of churches in municipalities are highly correlated.
