Your Brain or Statins?

I harp on cholesterol because it has been given a bad rap. If you have higher cholesterol after 70 years of age, you have a better chance of avoiding Alzheimer’s. I don’t know about you, but of all the ways to go, I really want to avoid that dreaded disease. On the label of the cholesterol meds, it says it is not good for the brain. If you take statins, you have a 49% greater chance of becoming a type 2 diabetic. And it quadruples your chance of Alzheimer’s. As you have heard many times, we pick our poison. I believe the statistic is that if there is a room of 100 people taking statins, it will help one person. The rest of the people get the side effect. Leave me a message if this changes your understanding of statins!
