Are Statins Necessary? Are we doing ourselves harm?
This article that I am sharing today was posted on Linkedin on January 6th, 2020. One of the points that Dr. Wimalawansa makes is that approximately 80% of the total cholesterol …. is synthesized in the liver. For most people, prescribing expensive lipid-lowering medications will not make a difference, except for perhaps causing adverse effects. Only 1% of people are the ones that would benefit from lipid-lowering therapy….99% do not! Please take a more detailed of his article below. This is another marvelous way to take a look at what we’re doing now, how can we use nutrients like vitamin D to help manage cholesterol with no side effects vs the drugs, costs, and side effects.
Are you taking a statin? How is it working for you?
Please share your thoughts about this below about what do we DO to help change this perception.
