Here for rides.
If there is to be a pill on the NHS at about £1 a day which will work wonders for blood pressure and cholesterol can I forego it and have £1 a day off HM Govt over 10 years to buy an Enigma Etape?
According to the quacks I'm involved with the cycling is making what I regard as the minor problems worse, and nothing will help the big stuff, not even a really nice new bike.
The crash, apart from borking my good thumb, and messing with my rugged good looks, left me remarkably unscathed though the haematoma thing on my hip is a bore.Nah I'm only messing you around, I read about the crash and I know there are other problems and very sorry to hear about them.
... nothing will help the big stuff, not even a really nice new bike.
I will. But you miss my rather badly made point. We taxpayers will pay for the polypill to be prescribed to those who persuade their GP's they need it. I need a shiny new bike, which will prove just as effective in maintaining my health as any polypill might. (and do more for the environment as it will keep me out of a car) But the taxpayers won't be asked to pay for my bike even though my GP would happily prescribe me one if he could.Ignore it, just trying to get us all on Big Pharmaceuticals that they can make a killing from in profits, rather than natural equivalents......proper diet and exercise, which cost little to nothing..
In the end, nothing will help with the big stuff for any of us: as my sister was told when she trained as a nurse, "Life is a sexually transmitted and ultimately fatal disease".
(At least we get to enjoy passing it on...)
