On Microblog: A Non-Statin Pill That Really Lowers Cholesterol, Blood Pressure and Inflammation without Side Effects Would be a Good Investment, Right?
Dr. KSS, thank you for a well written article and very pertinent information regarding ESPR and ETC-1002. Although you pointed out several of the side effects of the statin drugs, you omitted some very relevant information regarding the reduction in the le[...]
On Microblog: Thoughts from Myron — A Historic American Treasure
Trailing stop (usually 25%) has helped me keep gains. If a position goes up 100%, I sell half and play on "house" money. Wish I hadn't sold half of BIIB, though.[...]

On Microblog: The Statin Guidelines: Looking at the Whole Cardiovascular Spectrum
Jennifer Estes, you are right about the trans fats, and the FDA is complicit. The FDA allows the food manufacturers to claim "No Trans Fats" if the amount of trans fat in a "serving" is below some threshold number. So the companies manipulate the "serving"[...]

On Microblog: Drug Patents and Generic Drugs: What Does This Mean to Us?

On Microblog: PETROSONIC ENERGY (PSON)
A few years back I figured out Tobin's tease of BIIB (before becoming an irregular), bought it, and sold half after it went up 100%. The second half is still going up. I subscribed to ChangeWave for a few months, but that was the only big gain from Tobin's[...]
