His views may also have been influenced by personal and professional conflicts, by his work as a consultant to the tobacco industry, and by the fact that he was himself a smoker' (Abstract of Paul D. Stolley, 'When Genius Errs: R. A. Fisher and the Lung Cancer Controversy', American Journal of Epidemiology, Vol. 133, No. 5: 416-425, 1991). Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 24366
