Cholesterol Drug Flunks Again

Zocor, a cholesterol drug, can ruin your sleep, according to the latest study.

Sleep problems are associated with contributing to both weight gain, and diabetes.

So let's do the math here. Zocor is supposed to protect you from a heart attack (har har) but it can lead to diabetes which causes heart attacks, blindness and kidney failure, along with severe nerve pain, and gangrene which can lead to amputations.

Something doesn't add up.

Does this mean you should switch from Zocor to another cholesterol drug? No. All statin drugs block CoQ10, a vital energy producer in the heart. This means all of them promote heart attacks.

There is further evidence that they also lower testosterone and promote amnesia and memory loss. Stay away from these drugs.
