The Case Against Statin Drugs

polypharm3

 

Statin drugs have long received press suggesting benefit in the prevention of heart disease based on the premise that lowering cholesterol improves risks for heart attacks.

In recent years this Lipid Hypothesis related argument has come under increasing scrutiny due to the fact that cholesterol serves so many important functions in our body.  This post simply serves as a reference point for those interested in learning about the true relationship between cholesterol and the human body.

I will periodically update this post to include the most relevant links so check back and feel free to suggest a link depending on what you find “out there.”

    Enjoyed reading the informative articles. Glad your a bit skeptical as I am on trusting all the studies on drugs. It is always hard to feel confident about taking them knowing the many side effects that exist. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the subjects.

      Thanks for the feedback Gay! I share your sentiments on research. There are a lot of discrepancy and bias out there. Keep your eyes open. Read critically. As always shoot questions over if you find something others might find interesting or if you want my take.

    Is it possible to just stop taking a statin drug if you’ve been taking it for quite some time? Or should a person wean themselves off of it? Thanks you for taking the time to comment.
