cholesterol-lowering drugs can actually kill you?

cholesterol is naturally produced by our liver in our body, so I believe there's a good purpose why it is produced inside our body. a lot of doctors would say if we have high levels of cholesterol, it actually is bad for our health and more prominently lead us to cardiac problems. That maybe proven I guess and so medical scientists (funded by those big greedy pharmaceuticals) created the ever famous "statin" drugs (my father is taking his, and I'm sure you out there or some of your family members are maintaining that drug to lower your cholesterol) not knowing what the side effects are (doctors never actually tells us the very dark sides of every synthetic drugs they prescribed to us, I don't know about you)... Until I found out about a year ago how bad statin drugs can be in our body (good thing I'm still young and not yet in the stage where I will be told by a doctor to go maintain a statin drug...) what is your stand on these "statin" drugs that some medical experts would say is not actually helping our body but instead endangering us even more? From the archives of Dr.Mercola, perhaps I want to share to you this article to give you a perspective of what I really meant here. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/07/20/the-truth-about-statin-drugs-revealed.aspx

you're completely right. Doctors just give you medicine to heal treat your illness but after that you'll receive another. Current antibiotics that are capable of curing life threatening diseases has very dangerous side effects.

When I was a kid, we didn't have cholesterol! I went through 4 years of Biology lessons in school without encountering it. So why should I be concerned about it now? There are too many recently introduced things to scare you, when in reality we have lived thousands of years perfectly well without knowing about such things.
