September 4

National Cholesterol Education Month


According to an article in Medical News Today, our government is spending our dollars to host a health fair to remind us all that September is National Cholesterol Education Month.
How moronic is that? Our government spending big bucks to increase our awareness of what is a flimsy hypothesis at best for a whole month. Do they call it National Cholesterol Hypothesis Month?
It’s all presented as fact.

Understanding the facts about cholesterol can reduce risk for heart attack and stroke and can lead to a longer, healthier life. Risk factors can vary depending on age, gender, and heredity but can also depend on lifestyle, such as smoking, alcohol, obesity, stress and physical inactivity.

Note the certainty there. No mights or maybes. “Can reduce the risk.” “Can lead to a longer, healthier life.”
As I never tire of noting, it’s all speculation.
