    like all medications.

    "Proven" today = tomorrow's recall
    No basis? Lots of drugs have been taken off the market. I was on one of them. My doctor called me one day and told me to stop taking it - today, not tomorrow - as it was found to sometimes cause liver failure.

    Unlike many people I know, I am a believer in modern medicine and take drugs. But even I can plainly see that the drug companies cannot be trusted; they conceal negative research and exaggerate benefits. And drug interactions are largely untested and unknown.

    Moreover there are many people who dispute the significance of cholesterol levels in causing disease.

    We open up a huge can of worms if we start coercing people into taking drugs and/or punishing them for health risks that may or may not be ascertainable and may or may not be under their control.

    We decided to move the center farther to the right by starting the whole debate from a far-right position to begin with. - Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
