Page 21 - QUOTE

"...the authors of this Surgeon General’s report used this methodology to summarize the available data when deemed appropriate and useful, even while recognizing that the uncertainty around the meta-analytic estimates may exceed the uncertainty indicated by conventional statistical indices...." (p. 21)

Translation: The statistical method we used is no good, but we got the results we wanted by doing it this way.

In short, every Surgeon General's Report, every CDC and EPA pronouncement, and every news report about smoking and health is an insane extrapolation from shoddy statistics. If you don't believe me, this book is a good read and a well-researched account of the last 500 years of anti-smoking campaigns, including the current hysteria.
