    Nope: statistics. As in "correlation does not imply causation".

    I understand that, but higher BMI generally equates to higher body fat content.

    True, but a) the number to compare with is what was expected by their model and b) it is not clear that they've actually collected 40K dives over 5 years and 300 of those resulted in DCS.

    Only in America (tm) -- it generally equates to higher body fat content because the population is generally too fat.

    I agree with that, it is spreading though.
