Yeah, I'm not the biggest believer in the often prescribed statin drugs. What is troublesome is that often this is all people receive to prevent heart disease, when so much more can be done, with diet, along with vitamin D3/sunshine, fish oil, etc.
I'm just about finished reading Dr. Uffe Ravnskov book about the theory that cholesterol is the cause of heart disease. Eye opening book. Learned about it from this review.
