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%.
