Health Conspiracy

I figured that I would post this here since there's a lot of conspiracy fans knocking about.

So a year ago I go in for a routine physical and the first thing that they find is high blood pressure. BP has never been an issue for me as I'm usually 120/80. This test had me at 145/95.

I had gained a couple of pounds so I figured it wasn't impossible. So I set off on a bunch of lifestyle changes. I lost 50 lbs (I'm what I weighed when I was 19), got down to 15% body fat and I'm in the best shape of my life. Even better then my time in the military.

During the last year or so I've had a home BP monitor that I check every couple of days and my BP has remained high even with all of the other improvements.

Earlier this week I went in for another physical and it was an old nurse who did an old fashion BP check and she put me at 110/60. I told her what I was usually seeing at home and she strapped on their automated BP checker and it said 140/80. She manually checked my left arm and it was 110/60. She took me to a different machine and it said 145/90. She mentioned it to the doctor and he said the machines are more accurate and said she shouldn't be checking manually. Later in the meeting he recommended BP medication.

My MIL is a nurse so I had her manually check me yesterday and I was 110/65.

Step 1 - fire that doctor.
Step 3 - Profit.

The other issues that probably doesn't mean anything is cholesterol. A year ago I was 230 in total cholesterol and after getting it tested on my own a couple of weeks ago I was at 170. This would make sense with all of the weight loss except that I lost that weight be eliminating "heart healthy grains" and eating a high fat diet.

Is it possible that doctors are rigging the system to push more drugs?

Perhaps that suggests (unsurprisingly lost on you) that there are fields of considerable more depth, complexity, difficulty and intellectual nuance than becoming a medical doctor.
Well, what is it?

So do you tell your classmates at medical school that you're so cool and popular that you spend your Saturday nights arguing with fat nasty rednecks on the internet?

I guess everybody's lining up to be you, right?

You might want to rethink things.
I would put good money on him being in a psychiatric hospital somewhere telling everyone who would listen he's a real MD.

Yup. There are no other learning methods employed in the academy other than reading. No primary research, no free form discussion, Q&As, rhetorical analysis.

With each increasingly ignorant post you further cement the idea that one needn't be all that intelligent to enter the medical field.

Yeah, if you had a century, you could legitimately employ those methods for 120 books.

You serious?
