Alright, here's the deal. I went on statins nearly 20 years ago for high cholesterol. In that time I have suffered from debilitating muscle pains, swelling and itching of the extremities, and now irreversible vision problems. I've decided the risks are not worth the benefits of this well touted line of drugs. I've been on 4 different ones, all with bad side effects. I think it is time to call the docs and pharmaceutical company's bluff on this stuff! It has never been proven that statins actually prolong life. The stuff is like Doan's Little Liver Pills, only difference is they will kill you! Anyone else been poisoned by them?

You ain't kidding, those cholesterol lowering drugs will give you more problems than they will fix. Not only me, but I know a bunch of people who suffered because of them. I think it is just another money maker for the drug companies and an excuse to drag you in every six months for test for your liver. I also tried a bunch of them only to be more miserable than ever. People have died from them and that's the truth. If I am going to croak I would rather it be from natural causes instead of some fake drug to make me think I'm well. The next thing you know they will tell you eating gunpowder will make you live to be 100.
