A record 720 million prescriptions were dispensed last year, a rise of 50% over the past decade

In this month's Ecologist, NHS figures are revealed:

"Prescriptions hit record high

A record 720 million prescriptions were dispensed last year, a rise of 50% over the past decade, figures released by the NHS Information Centre have revealed. ... Prescriptions for blood pressure and cholesterol-lowering medicines are up to the highest level ever. Prescriptions for blood pressure drugs such as beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors more than quadrupled from 1 million in 1995 to 43 million last year. Cholesterol-reducing drugs went from 2 million prescriptions to 36 million in the same period. ..."

Take with this the following observations:

a) this is the decade of the mobile phone

b) cholesterol is higher in RF exposed people (eg:)


Int J Hyg Environ Health. 2006 Mar;209(2):133-8. Epub 2005 Nov 10

Cardiovascular risk in operators under radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation

Vangelova K, Deyanov C, Israel M [Comment: is this cardiovascular effect due to nitric oxide disruption?]

c) blood pressure is regulated by nitric oxide, which I still persist with as common factor throughout EHS and the other diseases associated with EMF exposure.

In fact nitric oxide is possibly the link between cholesterol and blood pressure (a number of research papers show radical oxygen species, cholesterol NO and eNOS are clearly interlinked).

So what is it about the decade of the mobile phone, cholesterol and blood pressure to lead to such enormous increases in prescriptions? Better medicines? More profligate doctors? Or has the EMF environment something at least to do with it?

Anyone who'd like to stretch this idea further, do let me know.
