Several readers of CluelessDoctors asked me to write about statins. I wrote a complete essay on the subject at here that explains all you ever wanted and deeded to know about statins.
Is there anyone who doesn’t need statins?
Must we take statins? Some researchers and doctors most certainly think so. Some even recommend adding statins to drinking water. This is obviously a rather dangerous proposition. After all, if we really don’t need cholesterol, why does our body make it? And if statins are so essential that they should be in the water to drink by all people in all life stages, then how come that our body didn’t add statin as an essential nutrient as part of evolution?
