Cholesterol Prescription Medications Can Kill You

While there are numerous options for people to lower cholesterol naturally, thousands and thousands of people are taking prescription medication to lower cholesterol - risking some very dangerous side effects.

These side effects can include:

? An increase in cancer risk
? Elevated liver enzymes (causing liver damage)
? Yellow skin / yellow eyes
? Rhabdomyolysis (degenerative muscle tissue condition)
? Impaired kidney function
? Muscle weakness and pain
? Dizziness
? Gas
? Headache
? Heartburn or indigestion
? Nausea or vomiting

Crestor, a prescription medication to lower cholesterol, has been linked to the death of a patient who developed a suspected case of severe muscle wasting. Company spokesman Steve Brown said "the death may have been due to a condition known as Rhabdomyolysis and the incident had been reported to regulators worldwide." Brown declined to say where the death occurred or what dose of Crestor the patient had been taking

For people that are looking for supplements to help lower cholesterol levels, there are many natural supplements available that can lower cholesterol and some of these can even be more effective than the prescription medications - with the added benefit of zero side effects.

A new product and website just released can show you many natural ways to lower your cholesterol, including over 35 natural supplements that will help to melt away high cholesterol levels. You can also find plenty of information on how to naturally lower cholesterol levels without any supplements whatsoever.

This is what one person had to say "?and on behalf of my wife I'd like to say thank you. Her cholesterol is down, her weight is down and her blood pressure is down (after a 7 year struggle) and the best part was that it was pretty easy to do"
Peter Bezant - USA

The above statistic about the death of a patient should serve as a warning. There really is no reason for anyone to be taking prescription medication to lower cholesterol. The side effects are just too dangerous. And when you consider the numerous natural options, including foods and supplements, that are readily available to lower cholesterol, prescription medication should not be an option.
