As I was sorting my papers on my desk, I found Dr. Lynne August "Facts About Cholesterol" written in 2002 which I will refer you to if you click here. Her first fact states that "There is no proof that cholesterol causes cardiovascular (CVD). CVD includes heart attacks, strokes and blood clots. The fifth fact states that heart attacks occur in people with normal and low cholesterol. The eleventh fact says that "Excess animal (saturated) fats and excess sweets and carbohydrates increase cholesterol. Too little animal fat deceases cholesterol too much. Eggs do not raise cholesterol. Eggs do not damage cholesterol and arteries and do not generate free radicals or plaque.
Dr. Mercola has a lot to say about statins on his website, and their link to diabetes, exercise-related injury, and should not be taken during pregnancy. See his article "Beware: This Popular Drug Can Actually Cause Diabetes."
