Your observations are as follows:

  • There is a positive relation between cigarette smoking and alcohol use but there was little relation of these habits and the diet.
  • However, persons received slightly less food energy from carbohydrates if they drank alcohol to those who did not drink.
  • Persons who smoked got slightly more food energy from fat as compared to nonsmokers.
  • However, the weight of the persons who drank and persons who smoked was less than it would have been had they taken their total energy intake.

Based on the situation and your observations, complete the following tasks:

  • Describe the benefits as well as the limitations of survey studies in establishing such causal relations.
