ARE STATINS SAFE OR NOT SAFE?
LET'S ASK HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS AND THOSE WHO FOLLOW THE MEDICAL LITERATURE
I watched my father die a miserable death, wheelchair - bound in a nursing home at age 92, with a 'healthy' cholesterol level after many years on statins. He would have been much happier dying of a massive myocardial infarction [heart attack] in his 70s while fishing, like his father did. One MedPage Today reader lamenting how increasing a person's lifespan is not all it's cracked up to be.
Interestingly enough, it seems that in a recent poll of mostly healthcare providers (Physicians and Nurses, as well as "lay persons") done by MedPage Today, a whopping 70% of those polled agreed with me. In fact, reading the comments of many of those polled revealed that they felt they had been lied to by their doctors and the pharmaceutical industry about the risks of Statin Drugs. THIS LINK will be up for a short amount of time (until they run another poll). Make sure to take the few minutes it will take to read this article and see what people in the know really think about Statins.
