UCSD Statin Effects Study

Statins Sap Energy, Study Confirms

Actually, just Google "Beatrice Golomb Statins" and check out the results. She's got some good YouTube videos, too.

I haven't been saving any links to get this started, but I hope that you have, and that you will post them here.
I guess I was kind of a jerk about it, looking back, but I just stopped taking them and just crossed them off when I updated my "list of current medications I am taking" at the doctor's office.
