I know someone who was taking statins for heart problems and then died later on of liver cancer. Bad stuff - research it before you take it. Doctors perscribe it in fear that if they don't they can be sued since it is FDA approved.

No offense, It's debatable and some people won't agree but Statin doesn't seem to increase survival in women, the elderly, healthy people and even for long term users. Instead a full spectrum of quality nutritional supplements along with healthy diet and exercise, to help obtain and maintain optimal health and arterial health is the best. Hence lifestyle changes are the most important factor for a healthy heart and the key is the application of preventive medicine.
