The rebirth of causality and that it means for researchers, doctors, and everyone else.

Unfortunately, this has led policymakers, doctors, and ordinary people to miss out on countless opportunities to improve their lives and the society they live in. In this Snapshot, you’ll learn why the taboo of exploring causal relationships is now dead and what this means for scientific research and the greater good.
