    Thanks Danny–this health care/end of life decision-lack of decision making occupies my awareness a lot. I’ve got a Living Will and named my hubby my healthcare proxy, and keep adding to the detailed instructions at the end–telling what procedures/nourishment/water/antibiotics other life-prolonging measures I do NOT want when my physical/mental/awareness state is sufficiently impaired. Every time I hear of another way of going to the end–I’m likely to think, and if THAT happens to me, don’t try to fix it. And tell my closest kin about it. I forgive everyone in advance for letting me die a little bit before the possibility of a quality day or few hours arriving after arduous physical horrors, rather than prolong needless suffering for me and everyone around me.

    Hi Danny – what’s your genetic marker indications for your propensity to be in the small, small percentage of the population who actually benefits from taking statins?

    See Eric Topol’s research in this area starting at http://www.forbes.com/sites/matthewherper/2012/03/04/top-cardiologist-argues-we-should-dial-back-on-statins-because-of-diabetes-risk/ this article from over four years ago.

    Thanks for all you do for SPM, Danny.
