Ministry of Common Sense.

Hi there,

I was watching the news this morning and there was a report about the dangers of heart attack in people who had recently had a  bereavement. It went on to state that the shock of losing someone close to them could bring on a heart attack, especially in those with an ongoing heart condition. I mentioned that numerous studies had been completed on many cases to deliver the results, they mentioned statistics and quoted numbers and I sat there thinking that it was a bit like the old Monty Python sketch about the Ministry of Silly Walks.

Who in their right mind would come up with a study like this? Do they honestly think the general public is stupid? Of course the loss of someone close to you will affect your heart, the stress alone is enough to incapacitate most people so it stands to reason that if you have an ongoing medical condition the risks to you are much higher.

It’s common sense.

Do we need reams of studies with statistics and numbers to tell us that if a brick falls on your head it’s gonna hurt? No because it’s common sense.

Come on people let’s get back to reality here, how much money and time has been wasted  running this survey? Surely it could have been put to better use doing anything else.

That’s my rant for the day,

see you soon,
