Statins not so nice, after all

Statins are drugs that lower cholesterol. Zillions of Americans are on them. But it seems their effects may not be limited to lowering cholesterol. New research indicates that statins cause changes in the brain's neurons. This is not a simple, innocent side effect. It's serious and very creepy.

If you were put on statins and then began to suffer memory lapses, the side-effect described in this article may be the cause of your problems.

If I was on statins, I'd stop taking them immediately.
