Ibuprofen is bad for you!

Post by chumley » May 10 2017 2:02 pm

A recent HAZ poll on hiker-medications indicated that 36 of 41 respondents take NSAIDs at least occasionally.

A study released in yesterday's theBMJ says that even short-term NSAID use may significantly increase the likelihood of heart attack.
(theBMJ is formerly The British Medical Journal. The link above may require a subscription to view, however the journal is open-access so a PDF has been attached here.)

Since reading scientific journal articles isn't for everybody, there's a nice synopsis of this meta-analysis published in The Sun. It has big type and pretty pictures!
https://www.thesun.co.uk/living/3520232 ... -one-week/
Lead researcher Michèle Bally, from the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center, said: “Our study supports recommendations to use the lowest effective NSAID dose for the shortest possible time.”
This study supports my long-standing belief that we're all going to die.

https://hikearizona.com/dex2/viewtopic. ... 57#p121936 I remember that thread. I'm surprised about the MI risk, but overall not too surprised about NSAIDs.
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.

And here I thought my steady diet of steak, sausage, and Lttle Debbie snack cakes was going to kill me. Turns out it could end up being an ibuprofin that does me in.

@rcorfman
I'm generally not into trendy designer things, but I'd be willing to try it out once or twice. :) For science.

@joebartels I'm surprised wild lettuce didn't make that list. It can have similar effects to opiods for relieving pain.

I can name 10 things that are worse or just as bad for you as NSAID that I see on here all the time (and herping ain't one of them).

1) Sugar
2) White bread (that includes pizza)
3) Beer
4) Hot dogs
5) Potato chips/French fries
6) Soda
7) Inadequate sleep
8 ) Prolonged sitting (long road trips)
9) Bacon
10) Overeating

You forgot Ice Cream.

And that's why when JJ makes me stop at DQ I always get the fruit smoothie instead.
