That’s a question submitted by Kathy via e-mail. And I can definitely answer the question myself once I have a little bit more info in the way of specifics (ie, Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL, etc.)
But since I am aware of the big push by Big Government, Big Medicine & Big Pharma to change the guidelines regarding cholesterol for the worse on 1-1-14, I decided to call on my friend and clinical nutrition mentor Dr. Bryan Reid to give us an up to date scoop on this crisis that is about to get even more out of control.
Dr. Reid is a heavy hitter when it comes to helping patients solve the problems that they encounter with their blood lipid profiles. This dude is a veritable wealth of information on the topic. So let’s get Dr. Reid’s take on STATINS vs CHOLESTEROL, shall we?
So there you have it, ladies and gents. You may want to reconsider before you just blindly take the advice of a General Practitioner M.D. regarding the “standard narrative” that Big Pharma has been trying to spoon feed us for decades regarding CHOLESTEROL being the enemy and STATIN DRUGS (like Crestor & Lipitor) being knights in shining armor.
Yours in health,
