8. You said Lipitor saved your life
When asked "How?" you state that you are taking the medication because you have been lumped into a risk pool derived from s statistical analysis based on a set of assumptions that are (in the view of many) suspect because of the relationship between pharma funding and research.

You have provided not one scintilla of evidence to support your claim that "Lipitor saved my life".
