Rapid Response:

Additions to the drinking water

For a long time I have made my students keenly aware that SAAB is not
the name of an imported Swedish automobile but rather the abbreviation
of the name of drugs which should be addded to the drinking
water..S...Statins... A...Ace inhibitors...A...Aspirin...B...Beta
blockers..It is now confirmed that SAAB in the drinking water should be
the new preventive medicine strategy!
