thread sorry to hear that.. i was reading somewhere that treatment for high blood pressure
can be actually detrimental to the killer aspects of the disease (even though it looks good bringing down the symptoms)
the european (i think french) system is to prevent the killer aspects first then through diet work on the other symptoms

but it kind of explains these folk that aren't that old but out-of-the-blue collapse/stroke/die
weird.. should look into a bit more really
