One of my many websites is: LifeWithoutLipitor.com. I have that website because much of my research has led to the conclusion that we are over-prescribed statins.
In a recent article, cardiologist, Dr. Eric Topol's briefly and to the point explains:
Evidence-based medicine is a fancy buzz term. You've got people who draw out guidelines from shaky data and tell the world this is the way it's got to be. A great example is statins. The medicine community promotes them like crazy. But for people without previous heart disease only one in a 100 people will benefit in terms of preventing heart disease. And then you have the FDA issuing a warning that taking statins can increase the risk of diabetes, which is at least 1 in 200 for the more potent statins. For people who have heart disease, statins are great. But if all you've had is high cholesterol, what you're doing is taking this 1/100 chance of getting a benefit and offsetting it with 1/200 chance of getting diabetes. What kind of trade off is that? We've got to get more intelligent about the individual's true benefit to risk story.

Many products boast that they are natural. Interestingly, as it relates to food, there is no definition for the word natural. It's all marketing hype. My favorite example is Raisinets ... Natural source of fruit antioxidants. Wow: it uses two feel-good buzzwords ... natural and antioxidants. It must be doubly good for us.
