I am amazed that these highly ducated Doctors can't figgure out that giving them fish oil, and vitamin D, and sending them out to play in the sun for a half hour a day would do the same thing without the side effects.
What’s patented toxic vitamin D replacement?
Where is the profit in that, my brother? /pherengi mode
Statins? For kids? Every day, I feel like i woke up on the wrong planet. Our news media is in a rush to not tell us anything useful about our politicians who do not follow or obey the Constitution, our Physicians are taught bad theory to "practice" upon their patients and there's a rush to get everyone in the country onto a drug of some sort. Our "food" that's normally consumed here is mostly carbohydrates, the one part of the human diet that humans can live without, causing all kinds of health problems more meats and fats would cure. Our water, our toothpaste is fluoridated, which is a toxin. Don't eat that toothpaste! Everything has sugar in it, and removing sugar from one's diet can cure a lot of what ails. I spent years and years of my youth feeling guilty for the foods I consumed, having been told they were bad, only to learn the nutritionists should be sued out of business.
LOL I sound like an old codger. I eat meats, fats, cheeses, butter on my veggies, drink tea, work hard, and my blood screening was outstanding.
This is all the more reason to avoid doctors. This doctor must be on the payroll of a pharm company.
You’re amazed that doctors paid off by the Pharmaceutical companies aren’t recommending natural alternatives to pricey prescription drugs?
One thing that frustrates me is that there is some speculation that elevated cholesterol isn’t the problem, it’s a *symptom* of a problem and may even be one of the body’s defense mechanisms. Somewhere here in FR is an article saying that these drugs do nothing to help patients live longer, they just lower cholesterol.
But let’s just toss these meds to kids anyway. Let’s drug ‘em before we get them out to play or take away their junk food. What could it hurt? Better living through pharmacology and all that. /sarc
