Statins are among the most widely prescribed drugs in the world. Yet many report unacceptable side effects and a US survey revealed that 75% of respondents stopped taking them within a year. So what is the evidence for their benefits? Dr Aseem Malhotra, author of ‘The 21-Day Immunity Plan’ and co-author of ‘The Pioppi Diet’, examines the claims for statins and their role in lowering cholesterol and preventing heart disease. He introduces us to his targeted heart-health plan, which, with a diet plan, recipes and advice on reducing stress and increasing movement, can help us to live statin-free and take control of our own health.
