Cholesterol and Statin Drugs


Cholesterol, the modern health villain, is actually a naturally-occurring lipid (fat) that is absorbed by the body from your diet and also naturally produced in the liver. Cholesterol circulates in the blood system and is critical to life. Perhaps you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with "high" cholesterol and immediately prescribed a cholesterol-lowering medication to assist your body in reducing your total cholesterol to under 200 mg/dL or other target. HDL cholesterol is often referred to as "good" cholesterol and LDL as "bad", but is cholesterol really good and bad?

In reality, the cholesterol in your body may be doing you more good than harm. Once again, let's re-think conventional wisdom and the pharmaceutical approach to health.
