Actually, if you read the article, they say that they are not certain which one is the cause and which one is the effect, but they are about to study it.
But if I read it, I might actually know what I'm talking about.
True. We can't have that, can we? :)
Shit no. It would go against every precious principle the Internet operates by.
Also that sometimes scientists don't know what they are talking about. Statistics seems to be too difficult concept to grasp. I wouldn't even bet for the connection before it is reviewed. Or something. But surely they check everything before they go public...
Well, yes. And New Scientist does have quite a lot of prestige, so they tend to be somewhat careful as to what they publish.
It's well known fact that 57% of all statistics are made up. ;-)
