    @ linus: I never said that statins block the production of ALL cholesterol as you implied. Even a statin defender should know that would kill any statin user quickly. What I said was that it restricts, or limits, the amount that the body produces. In - 91% more...

    To Chadd, Statins can and do certainly reduce cholesterol to dangerously low levels causing devastating and fatal outcomes to some victims. The cholesterol number goal has continually being lowered as the sales and profits increase. In a study in the - 88% more...

    To Chadd, While it's true that cholesterol is an essential part of cell membranes, statins do not eliminate or "restrict" ALL the cholesterol produced in your body; they merely REDUCE the amount of cholesterol your body produces. Even with - 82% more...

    A cpk test may prove a statin injury but will not disprove statin injury. There are many seriously maimed statin victims who show "normal" cpk results myself included. I had a friend take statins, I think 20mgs, for 17 days it took 6 weeks - 70% more...

    I have been off of it since January, 2010. The only thing that has lingered is neuropathy in my right foot. Can't seem to shake that. Some days is worse than others. But it is getting better with time.
