Expert Reveals the Real Cost of Taking
More Americans will die of heart disease than any other cause. It cuts across ages and ethnic groups, killing thousands each year. Statins, medicines designed to lower cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease, are taken by one in four Americans over the age of 45—and growing. Lauded as a miracle medicine, America’s most prescribed drug appears to offer a simple way to ward off disease. But are they as harmless as they appear?
Medical expert Mark Estren, Ph.D. challenges the conventional wisdom that Statins should be the first line of defense against heart disease. He breaks down the potential risks of continued Statin use, and reveals how, like all medicines, Statins do more to the body than they are designed for. Dr. Estren will give potentially life-saving advice to listeners looking to begin a heart-healthy lifestyle, all while giving informed, measured commentary on where our growing Statin dependence is taking us.
