People who don't have strange growths on themselves don't visit the doctor to ask if the strange growths are cancerous. But if you do have a strange growth, then it's good to visit the doctor, even though it puts you into the "visiting the doctor for a strange growth" category, which is a category of people likely to die of cancer.
 
People who live in safe areas don't buy self defense weapons often. But if you live in a dangerous, violent area, then buying a self defense weapon is a good idea, despite it putting you into the category of "people who bought a self defense weapon", which is a category of people likely to die a violent death.
 
People who don't go space walking in outer space don't put on space suits. But if you are space walking in outer space, it's a good idea to put on a space suit, even though it puts you into the category of "people who put on space suits", which is a category of people likely to die in an orbital re-entry accident.
 
The rule of thumb is to do stuff that makes sense for you, not do stuff based on statistics with simple correlations.
