Then there are people who take statins long term that do go on to have a heart attack anyway. In that scenario, they have confirmation the statin failed to prevent an event.
But for the others, all they have what they have been told. Their unfailing TRUST in drug company sponsored studies, and their BELIEF that "benefits" found in those studies will somehow apply to them, with no way to confirm ever receiving such a benefit.
My statement above didn't say people are "getting no benefit." I said they have "no verification of benefit." In other words, they will never know one way or the other if their statin prevented a heart attack.
Its not intended as an insult, but rather a reality check.
True medicine should not rooted in presumptions or wild guesses, but rather positive ID of a benefit received.View Thread
Obviously I have made an observation about statins you don't like. Didn't mean to upset anyone, but I felt compelled to share it.
The public is buying a product with absolutely no verification of benefit in themselves, simply laying down for what they are being told. All they have to cling to is belief in what they are being told.View Thread
