That's like saying that 92-95% of lung cancers are avoidable and the result of people deciding to smoke, so the solution is teaching people not to smoke. In practice, smoking rates (and lung cancer rates) only decline in response to public policy initiatives that make it inconvenient, expensive, or socially unacceptable to smoke. Arguing for more education is a cop-out.
