Pattern of declining blood pressure across replicate population surveys of the WHO MONICA project, mid-1980s to mid-1990s, and the role of medication
Okay. Let me get this straight. Study after study (with millions being spent) to determine which blood pressure lowering medication is best (and it turns out to be the cheapest–the brand new “fancy dancy” BP meds are less effective and much more expensive) and, when all the cards are laid out on the table, BP meds have had very little effect on the overall drop in BP over a decade. So, insurance companies want to limit chiropractic care to 6.7 visits per year, but they’ll pay indefinitely for meds to lower BP when they’re not shown to be effective over the long run.
