- The Edinburgh team studied over 2,500 stroke patients in the UK, Italy and Australia.
All received routine care, including aspirin and assisted exercise, and half were offered surgical stockings as well.

However, the group given stockings experienced more skin breaks, ulcers and blisters than those without.

- I hadn't realised that the Laffer Curve was so thoroughly looked down upon. Nice to update my knowledge.
