I promised to write about the poly-pill study, which seems to me to have faded away over time. It is an approach that pretty much insults the patient. Let's put 5 or so meds into one pill to improve compliance.
First of all, we're already too lazy to look at the dietary aspect of health, so might as well dump all the so-called medicines into one pill so we don't have to take responsibility for our own health.
That's me being sarcastic. We already know these drugs make the heart less healthy, so I won't be considering this with a fair and balanced eye.
The researchers admit the volunteers had a reduction in blood pressure and cholesterol, but we need to look deeper to see if health is improved. (Blood pressure went down 3 points, and cholesterol 4 points. See the Deflame Diet, Chapter 16)
It's still a "one size fits all" approach. If you have a bad reaction to a medication, how do you figure out which one is affecting you?
If you take a pill and keep eating your damaging diet, you will still have inflammation attacking your organs.
Oh, and nevermind that the authors of this proposal have applied for a patent in the polypill. I am all for entrepreneurship, but, I won't be a buyer.
See you at the table.
The adjusting table.
