Statins are high-risk drugs. Studies show very few people actually benefit from taking them. But they make money. The FDA has admitted that all the dangerous side effects are real. Then assures the public the threats are not serious. Talk about being in big pharma's pocket. Here's a great read from Natural News: http://bit.ly/z4aoDw

I took statins for about 6 years-High dose of Crestor. No side effects whatsoever. Then two years ago, notice I had a hard time finding words and thinking clearly. I stopped my various scripts one at a time to find the problem to be Crestor. Since then I have tried lower doses and different manufacturers. They all affect me the same way. Some doctors I talked to never heard of this. Others have heard the problem. I can recreate the symptoms by taking even small doses.
I also think the FDA knows more than it is telling at this point. I have also been diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Can you spell class action?

From side effects that cause cataracts, memory loss and numerous other health problems, Statin drugs have certainly made the money for the investor at the cost of the taxpayer in disability payments in Medicaid and Medicare payments and has a lot to do with medical insurance costs.. The Statin drug combined with the mind drugs have also opened the door to New investments in the Nursing home care from those suffering with Alzheimer and dementia from the drugs..

What should we do with medical corruption that the Republican (ALEC ) has inflicted on the people of the USA? Don't overlook the Mental Health Industry and the drugging of America including the children since the Reagan / Bush presidency.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#ahzn for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
