Dr Oz: Statins, Cholesterol Drugs, Red Yeast Rice & Crestor


Doctor Oz did a segment called “Which Cholesterol Drug is Right For You” to discuss the debate of Statins like Levacor, Zocor, Pravachol, Lipitor and Crestor – compare to natural cholesterol remedies like Red Yeast Rice.  This was part of Dr Oz’s Ticking Time Bomb: Cholesterol show.  Dr Oz said that Statins save thousands of lives each year and that 25 million Americans take them.  However, Crestor is approved for people to take before they even have heart disease, and there is a big debate as to whether this is a good idea or not.  There are plenty of side effects of Statins like muscle soreness, dementia and an increase in your chance of getting Diabetes by 10%.

    does anyone know the name of the author who wrote a book about cholesterol and was on Dr. Oz 10/6/2010?

    Dr. Oz mentions above that \statins save thousands of lives every year\. I am in a dilemma, I have read a number of medical reports stating that statins .. do not save lives and that there is no proof one lives longer, but are causing other detrimental problems etc. I would really like to have access to the medical info/study that he bases this statement on. If you could direct me to the studies that would be greatly appreciated. Looking for clarity. Thank you

    As most anyone who has ever cared for a young a child knows, feedings are rarely at set schedules, and some days the child will be hungrier than other days.
    However, studies show that these two methods of sleep training do not have any psychological ramifications
    when practiced properly at 6 months onwards. A few days later, mom and dad can stand at the door until baby falls asleep.

    In my experience jalapeno pepper reduces or eliminates the side effects (diarrhea, muscle cramps) of statins. About 1/2 teaspoon of cooked and diced jalapeno to a bowl of soup, several times a day. Jalapeno is dangerously hot and must be used with care. It increases the potency of warfarin, so if you try this, begin slowly and carefully.
