Actually "Water" is an excellent Beverage taken in the right "Spirit" !! if you get my drift.
However your other statistic might be "mathematically" sound but it's essentially meaningless.
Example here -- say the Mobile network in your area is 99.999% reliable.
on the one time it goes down -- it doesn't matter if its 99.999% reliable -- as far as you are concerned it's equivalent to having an ENTIRE planetary breakdown.
I rather suspect with malware and other things random statistics you've depending on the way you surf the Net or handle e-mail will probably show the same % of infections whether people who've USED AV software or not.
I wonder often when people who report they've got trojans or malware and HAVE BEEN USING AV software why the bother with it since it obviously isn't working.
I suggest the first port of call ought to be common sense basics in using computers and safe web access --THEN implement your security.
After all if you are in a hole --don't dig any more.
