    I thoroughly enjoyed this article and applaud your efforts at garnering attention to this very Important and as you suggest overlooked area of patient representation in drug trials. Thank you

    I’m a healthy 4’11” 85 year old Asian woman. I’ve refused to take medication for osteoporosis, high cholesterol and diabetes (all with borderline numbers). I go to fitness class three times a week and have felt for years that I don’t need the medications I’ve been prescribed. I’ve fallen on a TTC bus twice when there were sudden surges, but haven’t broken a bone.

    It would be interesting to see demographic data on the researchers themselves. Are they predominately middle aged males as are the clinical researches? Are they also predominately white?
