– (0.88-0.044)% = ~0.84%
I think you got that from Iain Davis via Off-Guardian. Possibly someone posted it to the BMJ blog, but if so I expect you found a link to it from one of your favourite conspiracy theory sites; after all, why would you be reading an “official story” site like the BMJ?
You could prevent this sort of contention by linking your sources.
