Are you seeing the connection? In reality, it may be much cheaper and safer to prevent heart disease by taking Vitamin D and getting good dental care than taking statins.
Yet doctors are still not recommending EITHER of these simple approaches to prevent heart disease, instead they immediately recommend statin drugs that come with a whole HOST of problems of their own- diabetes, liver failure and muscle wasting among some of the more common.
Do your due diligence if your doctor asks that you take a statin drug. There ARE measures that you can take to reduce your risk of heart disease that don't require taking pharmaceuticals. Ask your doctor if implementing some of the MANY lifestyle changes and dietary measures could eliminate your need for dangerous drugs.
