Mainly because of mainstream mass-media, most people today tend to confuse epidemiology with science. When they hear that “smoking kills X thousands of people a year”, they “see” those bodies lined up in the same way as they were during the mass-epidemics of the 1800s, caused by monofactorial diseases such as the yellow fever. That is completely false. The lifestyle “epidemics” are created by computers in which assumptions are entered in form of numbers. The base data for those assumption comes from questionnaires that turn into numbers vague memories of exposure of the interviewed – memories that are completely unverifiable by any scientific standard. Complex and intimidating formulas are then used to transform those memories – and the bias of the researchers – into numbers expressed with two-decimal precision to impress the ignorant and gullible public through the media and pilot collective behaviour and opinion.
