  1. When genius errs : R. A. Fisher and the lung cancer controversy. Commentary. Author's reply.

    Article - En anglais

    R.A. Fisher's work on lung cancer and smoking is critically reviewed.

    Although Fisher made invaluable contributions to the field of statistics, his analysis of the causal association between lung cancer and smoking was flawed by an unwillingness to examine the entire body of data available and prematurely drawn conclusions.
