Drugs used to lower cholesterol: about benefits while taking statins

        DRUGS USED TO LOWER CHOLESTEROL: ABOUT BENEFITS WHILE TAKING STATINS

Some very recent studies are showing that statin drugs can reduce inflammation in the body; specifically they are able to lower C-reactive protein (CRP) levels. According to Dr Christopher P. Cannon, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, USA, "CRP is a global screen for bad things in the cardiovascular system". If you have high blood levels of this substance, you are much more likely to have a heart attack.
Currently the mechanism by which statin drugs lower CRP is not known, but patients who have low levels (especially lower then 2mg/L) are less likely to have a heart attack, regardless of what their LDL level is. Perhaps statin drugs are exerting their protective effects on cardiovascular disease not by lowering cholesterol, but by lowering C-reactive protein.
It is good to know that statins can do something useful for your health, like lowering inflammation, but there may be a high price to pay. It is very easy to lower C-reactive protein with a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and having a high intake of vegetable juices and antioxidants are simple ways to lower your CRP level. The thing is that these natural treatments don't make much money. Drag companies make enormous profits on cholesterol lowering drags.
