I wrote this reply in response to 'idontbelieveit' but having written that reply I thought it deserved wider dissemination, so with apologies to 'idontbelieveit':
Some time ago I wrote a fairly long piece on FH that presented a different point of view than the current paradigm. It was immediately deleted by the moderator(s). Looks like I had crossed some sort of line. I presented a long, thoughtful and well researched piece that deserved at least an airing.
In no way did I suggest anyone with FH should dump their statins and enter the promised land of perfect health (according to me and my prejudice). I presented a thoughtful discourse on the subject. But with intervention from the moderator(s) the sacred cow lives another day!
Having said the above, to my mind we need to define what a forum is:
'A meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.'
So perhaps we need a new definition of forum, or Heart UK needs a makeover!
Information is everything, and unless everything is exposed to the white heat of discourse, then we don’t go forward.
I’m well known here as a sceptic, but sceptics are the life blood of change.
Change isn’t necessary, we have all the answers?
