And your arm cutting-off example is completely different (obviously). You can see someone get cut and then watch the blood come out immediately after, clearly pointing to the blood being a result of the cut. Tendon injuries come about gradually (unless they're acute from sudden trauma) and cannot be seen. They are different for everyone, take varying amounts of time to manifest themselves, and everyone who gets them is doing many other things during that time. It's something that has to be studied to determine the real root cause. Since it hasn't been studied, you can't just claim your opinion as fact, and then cite the same anecdotal evidence over and over again.
Things that are so obvious don't require studies. Why would string manufacturers market soft strings as being arm friendly if the converse wasn't also true? I mean if stiff strings were also arm friendly, why would they need to promote soft strings as the ones that are arm friendly?
Oh, and we also don't need a study to inform us that driving and texting is dangerous because it's OBVIOUS!
