Talk to your doctor about statins
by Michael Cutler, M.D.
Statin medications are widely prescribed to “lower cholesterol.” In fact, In 2012-2013 there were some 221 million statin U.S. drug prescriptions1 written, at a whopping cost of $16.9 Billion—the most money spent of all prescription drug categories! If you were among those prescribed a statin drug, I’ll bet you weren’t told what harm they can cause you. Unfortunately, few doctors even know or take the time to learn this. I suggest you learn this and tell your doctor this about statins.
