What is going to take you out?
I have been taking two medications prescribed by “Doctors”…
a. Pravastatin (20mg) prescribed by my VA doctor.
b. A multi vitamin… prescribed by Dr. Sherry.
I decided a few days ago to drop the Pravastatin. It was first prescribed at 80mg. I had a rash I attributed to the statin so I cut it in half. Blood work looked good. So I started having terrible leg cramps, So again Dr. Jack prescribed a cut to 20 mg. After a year the blood work according to my Dr., “Blood work is beautiful”. However he said I would continue to have the cramps and muscle deterioration. So I am tired of muscle problems, I won’t list them but along with muscle weakness, the cramps have been getting worse. So this week after lots of consideration, I have dropped that.
I may go to the Dr. next year and give it a check. Most folk would say the muscle problems are age associated, I am getting older, and that is for sure. I cannot raise a simple tool above my head without using two hands, now that is baloney. That is not normal. Of course that is my humble (or hard headed) educated guess.
I know you see the same headlines that I do.
Headlines this week:
BREAKING NEWS: INGREDIENT FOUND IN MAYONNAISEAND ICE CREAM LINKED TO CANCER. (Ingredient? Emulsifiers)

ORGANIC FOOD. Pricey, not particularly healthy..
This has all been discussed to the extreme and folk I respect say, eat what you want in moderation. Life is too short to cause yourself pain, and that is why I am trying to avoid the muscle cramps and strains.
Do I read the articles I listed above, not on a bet. I clicked on one and it lead to a book some doctor is selling. There was a lead in, but to find out the killer foods, you can go further into the hard sell and buy the book.
Life is good, I am happy. Will I continue to listen to Dr. Sherry and take the multi-vitamin? YOU BET YOUR LIFE. ;-)
Get ready you guys:
