is a way of showing whether or not individual risk factors actually cause disease, rather than just being associated with it.
With Mendelian randomisation
, scientists zero in on small snippets of genes that vary from person to person.

An association that is observed using Mendelian randomisation
therefore strengthens the inference of a causal relationship.

Next, it has been pointed out that the method of randomisation
carried out in our study, i.e.
