Greg B BS: References I Don't Understand (drug ads) (40) RE: BS: References I Don't Understand 28 Nov 11


Look, ultimately it's a "statin" drug among a dozen or so others. The objective is to lower your LDL cholesterol, which is a good thing, and important.

It works in your liver, as well as putting a bit of a strain on said organ.

They all work; and any competitive values are just a matter of who funded what study.

If you're English or Irish, you probably need it, as our genetics mitigate against being able to control our LDLs otherwise.

Trust me, a clot in a coronary artery can ruin your whole day. I've had one. And the stent to prove it.

I'm on Simvastatin, a $4.00/mo alternative. It works fine, to the extent that it can. I don't eat beef steak any more. I do eat cheese. And my numbers reflect that, and I'm not willing to hit my liver with even more statins.

So a little statin and a big life-style change, which means stopping with the animal fats and a lot of exercise and learn to love lettuce.
