Statins are used to lower cholesterol levels, but don’t reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack. Cholesterol is a risk factor tied to artery disease. The higher the cholesterol the more likely you’ll have a heart attack or stroke. Dr. McDougall presents a new study that shows statins provide a risk reduction of about 1% for heart attack or stroke prevention, in other words no real reduction. As with all drugs, statins have potential adverse side effects that can be serious, without offering any real benefit. Changing your diet yields greater results than any pill will ever deliver.
