How Does A Society Drugged Up On Statins Clean Up?

Those of us who run our health largely by natural means are still a small bunch by comparison with those who believe their local GP’s prescription will deliver their best health outcomes. Nearly 1 in 4 Americans over the age of 40 are on statins and the UK is pushing to get all men over 60, all women over 75 and a growing band of high risk over-30s on the drug.
