Anyone who’s ever studied statistics knows that #s are easily manipulated to show whatever results you want it to show. I studied stats in college, but moreover, you can easily see conflicting “evidence” on different sites by different sources for things- each side has their own agenda, and so whatever “data” that proves their point is suspect. That goes with the other side as well, whatever that other side is.
Case in point- back in the day, “studies” used to show how great Cocaine was for medicines/health/etc. All those studies just “happened” to be funded by Merck/Pfizer/industries (what a coincidence!). And you had Dr’s on TV and ads saying how great Cocaine was. Same for Cigarettes. I grew up with those ads saying “2 out of 3 Dr’s recommend so-and-so brand of cigarettes.”
Nothing is fucking real. Don’t believe the “studies” and stats being pedaled to you today. Know that almost every single “study” has an agenda behind it.
