Boomer’s Ramblings “Gee give me the fake one!”

There are plenty of medical studies out there. They are taking a look at pills used in weight loss, weight gain, acid re-flux, etc……and foams for hair care products, and liquid medications. The one thing they all seem to have in common, is the fact that they compare themselves to placebos. Yes that is right, there are all better than the sugar pill. Wow…I am frickin’ amazed. What are we going to tell Mary Poppins.  I guess she was kind of right a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Although it does not make a viable replacement for the real thing. At least not according to the afore-mentioned studies. I feel one of the greatest things about this country are the general principles  it was founded on. Principles that have given us rights. Competition is one of those rights. That is why the people love their sports. That is why companies advertise, and do what they can to motivate the public to their place of business. So what has happened within the medical community that they feel compelled to use placebos in their comparisons? When did this become a good idea? Is it some sort of inner sanctum code not to try and out do the other openly? Or…are they afraid they will not be as good as they thought? Is the idea of competing not going over too well? This was actually all brought about by a commercial I heard on the radio for a Rogaine  foam. It worked better than the placebo. What was that whipped cream?? Hey I have an idea the next time you get a Migraine, restless leg syndrome, or acid reflux, or you simply can’t sleep, take two sugar pills and call me next month.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
