The op is saying that 97 percent of terminal cancer patients had root canals,not 97% of people who went to the dentist...

This a bit like saying 100% of people who are devorced were married.
Sorry but theres a world of difference between wearing clothes in a car,which 99.999999999 percent of people do and getting root canals,something that not everyone gets by having high speed stainless steel drill bits bore into your mouth and hollow out your tooth,then destroy its nerves while penatrating deep inside your gums...

Nearly 100% of people that died in auto accidents were wearing clothes. Therefore, if you don't want to die in an auto accident, drive around nude.
Correlations such as the one in the OP are utter nonsense. You can chose just about any two parameters that you wish, and then draw a causality conclusion. It is junk science, and junk mathematics.
