Wrong about the stats

and inferring effects from usage (or prescription, or dispensing - once I've written a prescription who knows what happens to it, although pharmacy companies like electronic transfer since it increases the proportion of prescribed items which are dispensed ...) is not very good, alas.

As for the opts-out - I'm surprised it is only a million, or more precisely, I would be surprised were it so few as a million.
