In light of the recent media reports of new warnings with statin drugs, Its interesting a Physician has written a new book about statins drugs, addressing safety issues with statins. The book is due for release in April 2012.

Dr. Barbara Roberts, Director of a cardiac clinic at Miriam Hospital has written the soon to be released book titled THE TRUTH ABOUT STATINS.

I am privileged to have crossed paths with Dr. Roberts on the net, and had several conversations with her, which is how I came to know about her work on this subject matter.

I have not read the manuscript, but I have seen the cover. This is gonna be interesting. My curiosity is high.

For those people who have trouble with the statin side affects. I have switched to a drug called Welchol 625 MG Tablets. I have been takeing them for a couple a months now and have found that the only side affect is constipation so I eat a lot of fruit or take a glass of metamucil with water if needed. It works through the digestive system instead of the circulatory system and has dropped my LDL 35 points in the last two months. I was happy to find somthing that works without mutch trouble.
