How statin drugs really lower your cholesterol & kill you one cell at a time.
We’re back to a challenging article this week, so let me start with some words of encouragement. This is about a book with the title of this article. When I first read the book I thought “OMG – this is so serious”, but I couldn’t explain to anyone what I’d read.

This drug is, of course, the statin and the prescription of it will surely go down in history as one of the greatest crimes ever committed against mankind.
