You are better off with eating Low Carb, High Fat (for me, nutritional ketosis) and taking supplements of CoQ10 (and others) if you're concerned with CVD. High cholesterol is a weak predictor of CVD, which is the sole reason given for prescribing statins, even though the anti-inflammatory effects are far more likely to forestall CVD. And the small possible CVD benefit of the anti-inflammatory effects are FAR outweighted, again, by the side effects of statin usage. Besides, if anti-inflammation is rightly your goal, than you would be well-advised to eat a low carb, high fat (or better, ketogenic) diet anyway, and SKIP THE STATINS!
If I had to make such a prioritized list: alpha-lipoic acid is number 1 and Best Doctor's 600 mg is the best of the best; 600 mg is a lot. Twice a day is not a bad idea. Also, Dr. Sinatra's recommendations for heart supplements is short and sweet: Magnesium, CoQ10, d-Ribose, and Carnitine. Finally, to loose weight and maybe keep it off -- the number one prescription -- try Spirulina and Chromium Picolinate. They keep sugar cravings down and generally suppress appetite. Finally: low carb diets. Actually with this list slowly (6 months) I have countered the effects of statins and feel very good -- better than ever really.
This book is EXTREMELY technical in my opinion. I had a hard time following the scientific explanations supporting his theories as to why statins cause harm. Despite the technical jargon, I came away knowing more than I knew before. Besides causing diabetes, statins are responsible for memory loss, confusion, forgetfulness, and deaths due to the breakdown of muscle tissue. He also makes a case for why statins cause neuro-degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, ALS, MS, etc. What I also found interesting is that statins may increase a man's life one to two years but they have never been proven to be effective in increasing life expectancy for women.
Other than the scientific nature of this book, I feel it is a worthwhile read. It certainly a good idea for anyone thinking of going on statins to read this first in order to make their own informed decision. On another note, I did not feel this book adequately addressed what should be done instead of taking statins; I was really lost by all the scientific talk.
