Statins are widely prescribed drugs for the treatment of cholesterol but there is some controversy surrounding their use.  In her article in Issue 16 of Health Naturally Magazine,  Dr. Emily Kane (USA) explains that “Statins, the most widely prescribed drugs in the world, can cause muscle aches and fatigue in some patients.” This effect is most pronounced in people who exercise, an ironic conundrum when one considers that the people who need to exercise the most are those with high cholesterol. “Move less and you increase your risk of premature death and other undesirable outcomes, even if your cholesterol is under control.”  It seems a matter for further discussion and consideration.
