sohag100 obviously works for that website and wants us to click on it to make advertising money, then require us to LIKE them on twitter, FB, etc. I wish sohag100 would go away. They are just trying to make money off of us, and NOT trying to help us.

Hello kshitijdr123

The correct answer is A control his blood pressure

80% of stroke patients have a history of high blood pressure. Hypertension is the most common cause of stroke. Control of blood pressure can dramatically decreases the possibilities of having a stroke. All other options are also good measures to decrease the risk of stroke but not as high as control of blood pressure.

Thank you for your question

Default Why do you expect me to pay for you?

Hello jambalayajonny

You are absolutely right in everything you assumed. We have to make money through advertising to pay for the servers and contents of the website to allow it for people like you for free. All you do freely without obligation is to click on advertising. Would you rather that or pay subscription fees as in kaplan and other sites?. They have the best quality of questions online. Why you expect people to spend money on you without even helping them through third party by just clicking some links. Would you rather me to go away and not posting these important questions because someone else other than you pay the price to keep the website up and running without costing you or any medical students any money other than some clicks.
Finally, thank you for posting this comment to give me a chance to address this issue for you and others who are skeptical.

I respect free services online that make money through advertisting.

However, when 9/25 (36%) of the most recent posts (as of now) in this forum are by you trying to earn money, I DO have a problem. This is a forum for DISCUSSION. Your posts do NOT have discussions, they just have links to where you get paid for us to click.

You are simply posting advertisements for your website and hijacking 36% of the posts.

But maybe some people like it. I can't stop you. But I'm just expressing my annoyance by it, as I'm entitled to do

By the way, how do you know the answers you say are correct ARE the correct answers? What are your sources? Are they reliable? We see uptodate, UW, and Kaplan often conflict on the best answer, so I'm hesitant to blindly trust your answers.

Thanks!

Default Thank you for your reply

You can discuss the answers on this forum if you are not satisfied of the answers assumed to be correct. I don't want to annoy you by posting those questions here in the forum and I really decided not to post anymore questions.
I don't make money out of that and I didn't lie when I told you that the profit of advertising is directed to the expenses of the website and technical support. If you or anyone else thinks that the questions are valuable for this forum then they go ahead and share it here. Thank you again and have a good luck on your examinations.
