Red Yeast Rice/Lipitor/Cholesterol
I've been on Lipitor for about two years and have recently read that scientists are looking into a connection between statin drugs and ALS/Lou Gerig's disease. Apparently the World Health Organization found an unexpected association between statins and ALS which causes the degeneration of muscles and nerves. My sister-in-law died of this terrible disease for which there is no cure. A few of my friends have recommended red yeast rice, 600 mg, twice a day which is available at health food stores as an alternative. I'll pass it by my doctor. Your thoughts would be helpful. Thanks.
