All the sugar added to processed food is the primary cause of heart disease. Not cholesterol.
Dont tell that to the lipitor folks.
Half of all heart attack patients have normal cholesterol levels.
Sugar sells more food. And stock owners make more money.

My new gal actually has Lupus.  I asked if the House line of 'its never Lupus' would be funny to her.  She was not amused.

Anyway,

I thought the standard was to go from flu fears to shark attack panic?  Are we not doing shark attacks anymore?

And the fact that the evidence tying hypertension to heart attacks was anecdotal.

I believe the quote about it from an article a few weeks ago was- "people on anti-hypertensives weren't living longer, they were just dying with lower blood pressure numbers."

Notabunny: Ebola!

Subby forgot the regular hypochodria concerns. Let's add SARS, MRSA, Mad Cow disease and schistosomiasis.
