Subject: RE: Study: Statins reduce performance in runners
good reply. interesting.
As a healthy person outside the health industry, it is easy for me to take potshots at doctors and drug companies, that's for sure.
But that said...
I think in 100 years historians will be absolutely gobsmacked and unable to stop laughing at the amount of medicine people take in this country. 30% of kids are on medicine for a chronic condition? http://www.newstimes.com/news/article/Growing-numbers-of-children-on-medication-514614.php
What percent of kids are on ritalin or the like? 20%? More? I dunno. How many adults are on anti-depressants? 10%? http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-08-03-antidepressants_N.htm
What percent of people over 50 take statins? half?
What percent of old people take massive doses every day? 75%?
This sort of massive medication is new, and I think the pendulum will swing back at some point. I hope anyway.
I get your point tho that modern medicine has saved millions of lives, I do.
