Your thoughts are very valid for reasonably fit people though.

After all, he does have my name/age/dob and SS# too.... Yikes! ;) When I get really broke I'll auction off his celphone number hahaha. (yes I am totally kidding so don't ask yuk yuk).

Yes, I had to laugh in a bitter way about husband loved football, riding his bicycle, walking....just over time, these things have become impossible. He can just manage some Qi Gong in the morning. Very little.

I have not heard veins are more fragile than arteries but they are more elastic, which is why angio won't work in some situations. Veins will not hold their shape as well as an artery will. I don't mean in every situation as I do think angio would be safer if the vein is in a position where it will stay 'in shape', but stents 'ripping' veins is not an issue that I have heard about.
As far as Dr. Dake making money, I think he probably risked more money in what he has done over the last 6 months (wow- seems longer doesn't it?) than he will make selling them!
