Have you been to the doctor recently and been identified as someone who has high cholesterol or fit into one of the standard high risk categories. If you live in the western world, most likely you have been instructed to take a statin drug. Possibly you know what you are getting into but just opt to go with what your doctor tells you. Or maybe the level of fear compels you to move forward with this approach. It’s understandable, this is your life and you have been given a list of things that threaten your way of life and put you in jeopardy of heart disease. Like every story there are multiple sides and it’s good to have knowledge from all sides to make the best possible decision. Trust your instincts!
