With uncertainty of the use of synthetic statins to prevent heart attacks and the lack of proof that statins lessen the risks of heart attack in women, if not sometimes in men, many are looking for alternatives. Is your doctor, or the FDA, or you sure that the synthetic statin is preventing heart atttacks? Has your doctor, he or she, told you that there is no proof that statins lessen the risks of heart attack in women, if sometimes not in men? Has he or she told you that the following wholesome foods lower the bad LDL cholesterol and raise the good HDL and have fewer negative side effects? Maybe they are even better than the statins your doctor prescribes.
