The one on the right is more paleo-compliant, right? Both WAY better than most dressings?

Fish oil: $250 vs $25 / month

Doc’s office called, said 4 Vascepa ≈ 18 over-the-counters per day. (So only 10X more expensive, apparently.)

Said to try 4 over-the-counters per day for 6 months, and we’ll see where we stand.

Turns out Vascepa runs $240/month. (USA health care rant redacted.)

Total cost of 400 softgels above: $19 on sale at Walgreens. $7/month.

So… calling the doctor back today to get his thoughts.

The Definitive Guide to Cholesterol

irc.perl.com #paleo chargrill reminded me to re-read The Primal Blueprint chapter on cholesterol (an annual failure to retain on my part), and this excellent looking (at a glance) resource.

Doctor suggested trying Vascepa, a “new, concentrated fish oil” prescription medication. Pictured here is the daily dose, half in the morning, half in the evening.

My cholesterol history. Will be interesting to see how the new medication works. Phase 1 of the experiment was going paleo. As you can see, that helped my cholesterol. Phase 2 of the experiment was going cold turkey on my meds. As you can see, that didn’t help. So next 6 months is an experiment with a new med.

Healthy liver function. Yay! Good to know my old cholesterol meds didn’t hurt it.

The US Constitution could work. Precisely because it’s unclear.

From Radiolab: Sex, Ducks, and The Founding Feud

13:20 [The US Constitution] could work. Precisely because it’s unclear. Madison found what he calls a “middle station.” Where everyone can see what they want to see. … The Constitution becomes successful because people don’t agree on what it means. That, according to Joe, was Madison’s epiphony: The Constitution isn’t a set of answers. It’s a framework for argument.

As a computer programmer type, humans and their messy ambiguities in law make my head hurt.
