Did you ever hear of internet research?

Google is your friend.

There are many doctors who are too busy to make internet research to keep up with the latest surveys and findings!

Aha, OK...!!! :-D((((

So you do your own research as long as there isn't too much reading involved.

If you had read it you would know there are three links to sources in my reply to you. But you did not read the post or any of the links, did you? It is not an excerpt, by the way. The only thing that is a direct quote is the list early in the post, which is in quotation marks. All of the sources are more recent than your Mercola source, which you would know if you had read them.

You post links one can only access having a password.........:-D((((

You are TROLLING, are you aware of that? This constant back and forth with mixed in insults.

Just give it a rest, will you?!

You are not going to convince me that your way is the right way.

Only one of the four links provided require a password. Which you would have known had you actually been curious enough to try.

Anyone who wants a password to Medscape can get one, too, and you will not get emails from them if you do not want to do so. You can turn them off.

Your Mercola link was from 2012. All of the ones I gave are more recent, including the one explaining why calcification associated with statin use appears to be protective against coronary artery occlusion.

The article about the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis (that shows what you "believe" about calcification is false) is from 2016. You would know that if you read it, but you didn't.

So you prefer to avoid lengthy reading and are not curious about science and academic studies, yet you feel you are more qualified than doctors to dispense medical advice because Google?
