From Murray Stainton:

Re: Study: Nobel Prize may add two years to life (Jan. 20): In your piece on Nobel Prize winners living longer, the notion of reversed causation is not considered. That is, because the data are correlational, it may not be the prize causing longevity, but something about winning people causing them both to win the prize and to live longer.
