In general, however, one can draw stronger inferences from a "correct" temporal association. 6 can be applied to the evidence as a whole, but are more likely to be useful in evaluating single research studies. The next three apply only to the evidence as a whole, and not to single studies. Consistency of association refers to the range of study methods and research subjects. If we find some effect in prevalence, case-control, and cohort studies, with supporting evidence from animal experiments, we may feel more confident about inferring cause and effect than if only one of these is positive (even strongly positive) and the rest show no effect.

G. Cuddihy, We. Griffith, and lL. Mauderly Faced with this dilemma, one alternative is to attempt to study surrogate measures or markers of the dose of diesel exhaust to critical biological units, be it macromolecules such as deoxyribonucleic acid, or specific cell types, and then determine the relationship between exposure (concentration and duration) and the measure of dose. Although this approach is conceptually attractive, it is dependent upon knowing that the dose measured is causally associated with the development of the health response of concern, in this case, cancer.
