Millions of Americans are currently taking a prescription medication to lower their cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
We’ve all heard it throughout our lifetime that you better keep your cholesterol below 200 if you want to keep from having clogged arteries which could lead to a heart attack, stroke, or worse. These warnings have come from well-meaning physicians, dietitians, and other so-called health “experts” who are simply regurgitating what they have been taught in medical school, personal training, and from other sources. One of those “other sources” of information are pharmaceutical companies which stand to profit greatly from a trumped-up condition that they can swoop in and come to the rescue of people with a susceptibility for atherosclerosis with a miracle pill.
