Drug cos. make drugs for money not for our health. They spend more on advertising than for R&D. I chuckle when I see their ads. with the list of possible side effects in small unreadable font or hushed down voice on TV. Some people think doctor who give lots of medicine is good doctor. Statin family drug for Cholesterol? If one takes them, watch your heart.

That is a cooked book kind of thing. Most of the time people trying to make this point don't pull out the money spend on advertising RX from OTC side of the biz, which obviously has a higher advertising budget. They also tend to not include the costs of clinical trials in R&D. I have searched for many years and I still haven't been able to come up with a stat on this subject that I am entirely comfortable with.

Wow Tony, you are doing well. Tell me, have you ever experienced any debilitating physical injuries and insults to your major joints over a period of many years? Regardless of the pain it causes me, physical activity really helps me. When I'm cleaning house or helping my roommate out on a job, I must stop and sit down every now and then but the more I move around, my quiescent joint and muscle pain level decreases to a level which is mitigated by lower doses of my pain medications. Live long and prosper Tony. ^_^

I was very skinny and tall when I was a kid but thru the service and overseas work I became pretty tough, luckily never had any serious injury or wound. But had encountered few near dead situations in war Zone. Since kidney x-plant in '96 I slowed down, took early package, left Honeywell after 32 years. It came with pension and supplemental health care support. Only med, I take is anti-rejection drugs supplied free by health care. I understand some pain drugs are hard on liver/kidney and bones(better watch them) I am living by 3 months increment. Blood work every month, visit to specialist every 3 month. So far all is well. I just replaced our old dish washer in the kitchen. Should take couple hours but spent good half a day. I am just little slower now but no pain, no ache, my fingers are always crossed. I want to see my grand son go to college and get married. I walk our dog twice a day 2Km each time. Today it is -22 deg. C and we went out. Dog is part Husky he just loves cold and snow, LOL!.

My first disabling injury happened after I left college. I had a handlebar snap off at 100mph and I did a 1/4 mile Karate roll which ended with me up on my feet but I was quite bloody. I've had all sorts of injuries over the years from working too hard and accidents. Every part of my body is damaged in some way,(yes brain too)except for my back which I sprained back in college when I was doing a flip on a trampoline, landed on my chest and my feet hit me in the back of the head. I was quite flexible back then but no contortionist so I did get a lower back sprain. I was young and got over it so I really don't have debilitating back pain like some folks I know but I can tell when the weather is changing by how much my hair hurts. ^_^

When I was roaming overseas as a GS-13 military civilian, we had safety engineer watching our work habit. If safety rule is compromised, depending on severity a reprimand on the personal record or being fired on the spot. There I became extremely conscious about work safety. I was always often more than careful. I was born with defective kidney and was matter of time when I am going to lose them. All in all, I feel very lucky so far. Throughout my career heavy physical labor was not involved. Sounds like you are pretty tough SOG, LOL! I am almost 6 ft ,160 lbs. and leftie.

Heck I'm only 5'12" and when I was younger I could pick up a car engine and the best health I was ever in as a grownup out in the real world was when I was working out in The Marshall Islands. We got around on bicycles, that is the ones who weren't heavy smokers. I'm allergic to that crap and can't get around it which is why I left a high paying job. I loved it out at The Kwajalein Atoll and had a very tiny itsy-bitsy infinitesimal part in the SDI program back in the 80's. ^_^

drug companies want to sell more drugs for bigger profits.....
thats why normal blood pressures have dropped over the years. and so have normal blood sugar levels...
BP used to be some number plus your age.
ultimately this moved tons of people onto drugs, which ultimately may have more bad side effects than the original now llower number they are trying to help.
just look at the possible side effects of most drugs, like statins for cholestrol..
but the drug comanies want everyone on pills.... because its good for profits

    Seriously, the old BMI calculation only worked for people of average height. It was deployed back in the days people did not have calculators and had to do the math by hand, or slide rule. It is still used by drug companies that want you to spend.

    The new BMI calculator takes extremes into account:

Shadow... the NSA can tell your height by your shadow just like they did using satellite photos of Bin Laden in his compound. Just saying!
