Expert: Statins for Cholesterol Not the Answer

The American Heart Association recently issued new guidelines regarding cholesterol control starting with monitoring children as young as two years old. The AHA recommended a lifelong approach to lowering cholesterol to reduce everyone’s risk of heart attack and stroke.

While the guidelines did take an aggressive stance in fighting cholesterol through diet and exercise, they also recommended prescribing cholesterol lowering drugs including hard-hitting PCSK9 inhibitors added to statins for high risk people. Some experts say that the warnings are aimed at the wrong culprit when it comes to reducing the risk of dreaded diseases in our country.

“While cholesterol lowering drugs like satins are still valuable for a certain population, the real Public Enemy No. 1 is sugar — not cholesterol,” Dr. Stephen Sinatra, co-author of “The Great Cholesterol Myth” along with leading nutritionist Dr. Jonny Bowden tells Newsmax. The well-known integrative cardiologist adds: “I myself prescribe statins for men only, under the age of 75, who already have proven coronary artery disease along with CoQ10, but not for the general population.”
