Scientists add new dimension to ‘social death’

“Any time you try to say that death is attributable to a single cause, there’s a problem – all deaths are attributable to many causes.

“But what we did is just as valid as what was done to establish smoking as a cause of death.”

Um, I'm confused. Smoking is a cause of death, solely on its own? If one is to believe the 1st statement above, then the correct way to word the 2nd sentence would seem obvious: Smoking can be a contributing factor in death... Or.....There is a correlation between smoking and death, not smoking is the cause of death in all smokers.

Which is it I wonder?
