Are social causes so different from all other causes? A comment on Sander Greenland

Susser, Ezra S.; Schwartz, Sharon B.

We agree with the main thrust of his argument with respect to public health policy. We have some concerns, however, about his treatment of social causes, and on this point we focus our critique.
