    Joe, interesting post. Perhaps more interesting to me as I was taking the 5th grade science test – I hit the 6th question in and it said something to the effect of this: some people take medication to keep their heart healthy.

    It was largely in reference to people who take aspirin to thin blood, which is a practice done post stroke that has somehow morphed into a supplement routine. But to subtlety plant that seed that a healthy heart requires something other than a healthy diet and exercise?? To me it’s reasons like this as to why we are the sickest developed country in the world.

    Thoughts Joe?

    • Thanks, Doc.

      The importance of teaching our children to be independent, critical thinkers is VITAL moving forward – regardless of the source.
