Polypill 'could become a reality'

BBC News, March 31, 2009

New reasearch suggests that a five-in-one polypill could guard against heart attacks and strokes for those over 55. Although progress on the research has been slow over the past five years, there is a trial of the pill currently being conducted in India. And it has already shown that the pill has "the desired effects and is safe and well-tolerated by those who take it." There are some medical experts, however, who question the ethics of the pill as it relates to lifestyle issues—they believe such heart-related problems should be tackled with diet and exercise rather than merely "popping a pill."
