    Why do you think they presented their data as hazard ratios, then extrapolated out to a hypothetical population of 10,000 at 75 years of age rather than just comparing the percentage of deaths for each of the two groups?

    Interesting user name...Isn’t it the virulent strain of E Coli? Been a minute (or 22years) since I studied it in college haha)

    Wait, this is what I mean - 15"? That's nothing. My arms are over 16-17" but I am tall and I consider that pretty puny. I have gotten my BP tested several dozen different times, seen a few cardiologists including one guy who was the 'Head Of Cardiology' at a University. I am going to march to my doctor and demand a larger cuff size ASAP and see what happens.

    I have got to say I have heard Rip trot his line about arm size/cuff size measurements for years and always assumed he was talking about 20 incher corn fed Texans that he hangs out with.

And you are a sloppy thinker/writer (to demonstrate some inside knowledge of medical training you used Med school slang incorrectly).

    Messages received. I thought I had misinterpreted, but I guess not. Thanks for clarifying.
    Thanks for proving my point.
