Dr Mike Eades has had some excellent write ups on statins lately....a must read esp for anyone who's doctor tells them they need it! Looks like a big article coming out in businessweek against statins....

I sent this to every one I know who is flirting with statins. Cholesterol seems to run relatively high in my family but no history of heart trouble... knock wood... so little by little we are easing up their panic.

My mom at age 70....just got off statins because (besides me being on her case) she was tired, not being sharp (with her thinking) and just felt out of it....needless to say she feel more alive now and plays competitive tennis 3x a week while still working a part time labor retail job. Yeah statins are the answer.....ummmmm no. In fact as the article said...there is NO proof that it prevents anything in women at all...including heart disease.

Hmmm....rise in altzimers...rise in statin use...the brain uses cholesterol to protect itself....Hmmmmmm.....creating a nation of zombies....oh yeah, no decrease in heart disease too.
