Still Controversial, but Still SURVIVING! Do the Cardiological Benefits of Statins Outweigh Their Negative Side Effects?

Share Article

Recent medical studies are recommending lowering existing LDL cholesterol levels for post heart attack patients to levels significantly lower than the ceiling of 100 mg/dL that has been in effect until now. Many people taking statins to meet the existing goal of 100 already feel that the quality of their lives has reached zero. Mike Stone survived his heart attack with flying colors, but surviving the statins was a different matter altogether. This is his story; why he discontinued taking the statins, what convinced him that it was NOT the cholesterol that caused his heart attack, and where he is today, several years later.

In "Surviving a Successful Heart Attack", Mike Stone describes the massive disruptions in his professional and personal life, and his own futile attempts to climb out of the mental/emotional abyss that he had somehow stumbled into. Anyone who has had a heart attack or fears one in the future will want to read Mike Stone's harrowing experience in post heart attack life and his own conclusions (contradicting many of today's accepted cardiological doctrines) as to what really caused his own heart attack. Well referenced.
