Statin studies have been very biased and show very little if any real benefit for women. They do cause a variety of adverse reactions. I have reversed most of the adverse reactions from Lipitor but unfortunately am left with chronic peripheral neuropathy and tinnitus. My doctor insisted on keeping me on a statin in spite of my complaints and symptoms.
Each person on a statin is earning money for the pharmaceutical company, labs and doctors with extra visits to monitor the cholesterol level and liver function. I paid to become unhealthier. If I had not continued to workout regularly, I probably would have been in a wheel chair by now if I had continued taking Lipitor.
I am one year younger than Hillary Clinton.
No way could I match her stamina even though friends who have watched my videos think I am much younger.
(I am hoping Hillary is not on a statin)
