Getting statins facts right

From Dr Anthony Fox



I am astonished at the general lack of knowledge in biochemistry displayed by my medical colleagues in many medical articles.

Surely it is now well known that statins interfere with the Krebs cycle in two, if not three, sites. This has to be a major side-effect, and is the reason they should not really be issued on general release to the public.

A major way of counteracting these adverse effects is to give enzyme Q10 also.

Many trials have this point, it is not just hearsay.
