I am not reasoning by anecdote. I am merely trying to show you the error of your ways. It is way to easy to look at a study's numbers and jump to the wrong conclusion, especially if you are desperate to find anything to justify your existing beliefs.

I bought an African amulet some years ago that was said to ward off man eating tigers. I don't believe in such superstitions but I really liked the thing as a piece of jewelry so I bought it. Now 22 years later I have never been threatened or even seen a man eating tiger so obviously the amulet really does ward off man eating tigers. It must be worth millions.

Any assumptions drawn from a study's numbers must be looked at very carefully and great care taken to get the right cause and effect.
