And Again… BREAKING NEWS… on Statins

A new report suggests that Statins are not only of little benefit to patients but do more harm than good. The real benefits apparently come from a healthy diet and exercise.

If you are on Statins, like I am, reading this article definitely makes me doubt why I am taking them. There hardly is a month that goes by without there being another article on this cholesterol lowering drug. Some encourage these being prescribed and some like this one claim they are of little benefit.

This article looks at the review from author Dr Maryanne Demasi, in the British Sports Journal of Medicine. Dr Demasi discusses the Statistics of Statin use, the risks and side –effects.


Continued use of Statins? This article adds much to the debate.
