Take the time to watch this 2 part series. It is a very controversial topic and I personally believe we have been mislead into believing that statins are a 'life saver'. In saying this, however, I don't advocate that you just suddenly stop taking everything. All the decisions you make need to be made by researching and investigating the information that is now widely available on the web. You need to be comfortable with your decision and feel it is the right one for you. If you are on statins, feel free to came and talk to me... there are supplements that are critical to be taking to help offset the downside.
