Siddhartha Mukherjee's article in yesterday's New York Times Magazine about cell phone use and brain cancer provides a good reminder of the difficulty ahead for an individual trying to use statistics to make decisions: as an individual you don't know in advance which group you're a part of. It's a good article, though not as good as his book about cancer (out of the scope of this blog but well worth reading).
