Text contradicted by table

The linear association between DAH and GHE-S as percentage of GDP is not significant after excluding these observations.
http://plosmedicine.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pmed.1001214#article1.body1.sec3.p4

Of the four p values reported in table 4 for the relevant regressions (all of which test for "linear associations"), two are zero, one is .103 and one is 0.34. This does not constitute lack of significance.
