LR: Blood clots and bypass surgery

LR: Blood clots and bypass surgery
« on: February 13, 2005, 05:55:25 PM »
The details of this one are fuzzy but I think it went like this:

There was a question that stated that women had a higher rate of blood clots than men (I'm not sure if a reason was given for that).  Then a statement that bypass surgery resulted in greater difficulty or death because of blood clots.  It was a must be true and I selected the answer that said that people should not have bypass surgery when they have blood clots.

Does anyone have a clearer recollection of this one?

Great job remembering this stuff!

Was the answer that women should avoid tea prior to bypass surgery? Because a chem in tea prevented bloodclotting?

Yes you got it!  For some reason tea caused clotting in women but not men so the response was that women shouldn't have tea before surgery.

Teamwork  ;)

I think that one must've been in the LR experimental, because I have no recollection of that one...

i may have p[osted this before, but I think the tea / surgery questiojn was on Dec or Oct, because I remember it and I rememer learning that the "not to drink tea" was the right answer... anyone else think this?

I just checked and there was something along those lines in October.  I feel like thre was something similar, but I could just be confused.
