I won't die. My body will, sure. That's how God made us. My soul will be forever. Deal with it.<quoted text>The "rest" of society? Do you actually think that other than you all of society is dependent upon or takes medication for high cholesterol or high blood pressure?
They don't- but for most of those who do, taking those pills or not taking them is a matter of life and death.
Only a MORON would refuse to take a pill if told by a doctor that the medication was the only way to get their cholesterol or blood pressure under control and that without that medication, they could risk a heart attack or death.
And too funny- you refuse to take pills that are prescribed ONLY if they are needed- yet you SMOKE cigarettes which is DEFINITELY not needed and is also reported to contribute to high cholesterol AND high blood pressure- TOO TOO funny!
And yes- I am also a smoker, but luckily for me, my BP is ALWAYS normal and a very good normal at 120/70 most times and my cholesterol is also within normal range.
Still and all, if I had high cholesterol or high blood pressure and chose to continue smoking, I would most definitely take medication that could save my life.
Then again, yesterday you claimed that as a born-again Christian, you will never die........so no reason not to add another delusion to your already delusional mind- that being that the "rest" of society is dependent on drugs, which is NOT the case, but even if it was, being dependent on something that could mean the difference between living and dying is NOT a bad thing.
Why is it "stupid" to dent high BP meds? My BP was something like 145/105, the doc tried to prescribe me meds (the easy way out). I flat out told him no, I'll fix it myself. In just a few months, I had it down to a better rate. It's held there for many years now. I didn't "need" medication.
When I say the "rest of society", of course I don't mean everyone but me. There's a lot of folks out there that refuse worthless medication.
BUT, 61% of Americans are on some type if medication for a "chronic" health problem. 25% of seniors take 5 pills a day. That's a lot of pill poppers. It's become an epidemic all it's own. We're becoming a pill dependent society. The scary thing is the long term repercussions that are unknown.
Look at those ridiculous pill commercials. How many side effects are people willing to put up with? Sure, your heart rate will drop, but you'll get hit flashes, bed sites, anal leakage, loss iof hearing, erectile dysfunction, etc, etc..... It's NOT worth it.
