Subject: RE: Study: Statins reduce performance in runners
If you had really high cholesterol an was unable to control it through diet and exercise, would you choose setting prs in your 50s or possibly not living into your 60s?
Why take such an extreme viewpoint? Of course the drugs do what they are supposed to do, and are life savers for those unable to self correct.
I suspect most of the millions of people who take these drugs do so because doctors don't believe the patient will modify his eating/exercise behavior. Which tells me that there are many people running poorly because of these drugs when they don't have to.
I hear stories about people who hit 45 or 50 or whatever and their running goes off a cliff...I bet some of these guys just started taking statins and are unnecessarily suffering, out of ignorance.
