    Quote from Dr Dan Kopans

    If you reduce breast cancer deaths by 30% this means that you would reduce all-cause mortality by 1%.

     
    No it doesn’t. If you die from other things in any case, you aren’t reducing all cause mortality. That’s why the end point is called all cause mortality. I’m not promoting anything with this point except to point out that you called something “non-science” and you don’t even understand all cause mortality.
     
    What else doesn’t reduce all cause mortality? Statin drugs in people who don’t have Metabolic Syndrome. Note the commonality usually between things, while possibly just an association, is probably not if you know anything about human beings and incentives ($).
