Dr Oz: Should You Be Taking A Statin?
In the summer of 2015, there were dozens of headlines about statins, causing more confusion about who should and shouldn’t be on a statin. Dr Oz wanted to share his advice on who should be on the drug, and who doesn’t need it. It’s known that statins can help prevent heart disease, in addition to lowering cholesterol. Dr Oz then explained that if you have plaque in your arteries, it’s not always a problem, because the blood can still get around the plaque and go through the arteries.
