i want to make it clear i was just reporting what i heard on the national news. i would never attempt to play doctor and advise anyone what to take or not to take. the media frequently will make a big case out of drugs and scare people as is the current case with statins (lipitor,etc.). apparently 32 people may have died as a result of taking these drugs. they do not mention that there are 9,000.000 people taking them and countless lives have probably been saved. 32 deaths out of 9,000,000 as a result of a reaction is probably less than deaths caused by aspirin. i often think they should not just though out liitle tidbits without the complete story when it comes to peoples health.
