If you are a patient who suffers from high levels of the so called “bad” cholesterol, then you have probably been prescribed with Statins, medicament that reduces the health issues related to heart diseases and lowers the level of the harmful cholesterol.
However, recent research proved that statins can be the cause for many other health related issues than they can treat. Crestor, Lipitor, and Zocor are just few in the range of most administered medicaments by the people suffering from high levels of “bad” cholesterol. People in the United Stated during the course of 2014 have spent $374 billion, and this statistics on prescription drugs spending has not been the case since 2001. Large amount of the money spent for prescribed medicaments are for the statins, but those who administer such drugs should think twice before they administer this drugs again, not only for their budget, but, instead, for their health.
