    Re: something is both a cause and a result of another thing

    The idea is expressed in formal academic language as mutual causality.

    That's neither an idiom nor an expression, though. It's an academic term.

    Thanks a lot.

    Could you please use it in a sentence? I searched the Internet but could not find a proper example.

    Look at the diagram here: https://www.researchgate.net/figure/...fig3_330111090

    The epidemics are shown to be mutually causal.

    I don't think you understood jutfrank's point. It's an academic term. It's not a phrase people use in everyday conversation.
    Not a professional teacher
