No, but the above implication isn't a very good argument. I could make the same argument about sprained ankles:
For the hundreds of thousands of years our more recent ancestors hunted and gathered their food without good footwear, how many times each year did they sprain their ankles? Now, are you sure that wearing sturdy footwear for the rest of your life is the right thing to do?
I'm not saying CR is bad; some of the other data posted to this list about CR is very interesting. But the above argument is... less than compelling.
