I also feel somewhat compelled to add this: While doctors will tell you they've rarely seen anyone with side effects from statins, among my own circle of middle-aged friends, I know 3 who've had serious problems with their livers, one who had some muscles permanently destroyed, one--a usually energetic tennis player-- who felt, for the few months he took statins, as though he had the flu, and could barely go to work-- and one who was left with ringing in the ears and a facial tic. All of these are listed as side effects of statins, as Kendrick points out.
Truly a remarkable book, well written, researched, and told with a dry wit that made me chuckle even as I vowed to make sure I never go on a statin.
I recommend this book for the student and the layperson to better understand this small aspect of nutrition. Cholesterol is a poorly understood and often bullied nutrient and it's nice to see someone lay out a good defense.
