That's OK...it's only one statement and it's my perspective from my own experience.
statistics don't serve a purpose on whether we get something. It serves us whether we would like to try medications, products, doctors.
Statistics are important for easing one's mind or using something in defense of something that's either positive or negative.
They're useful for bending the truth. they're useful for supporting the truth.
They're derived from studies, and while they're useful in helping us making some decisions, it's not subjective enough in the likelihood of what we'll get/need, etc.
