Yes, I know I should cease pretending I'm a member of the grammar police, but here's an article title that irked me: Obesity Linked to Depression, or Vice Versa.
"Linked" is a nice, friendly, mutual relationship, not an assertion of causality. Consider how it might sound with "linked" replaced by various synonyms and some test subjects and objects swapped out for obesity and depression:
Jason Bateman related to Justine Bateman, or vice versa
Lambada connected to proscribed dancing, or vice versa
Weddings correlated with marriage, or vice versa
Pedantic grammar righteousness associated with searing boredom, or vice versa
