Statin Nation Statin Graveyard

I’m not sure how many of my readers really trust me. I know most of you do. But newcomers might ask themselves, “Who is this idiot making absurd unscientific claims? Everybody knows that half the world it on statins and yet he says they don’t work and are dangerous. That’s just not possible. Statins are scientifically proven effective and will prevent heart attacks and stroke.” OH NO THEY DON’T!

I get a lot of input from readers, followers, and former patients.  One of the most common questions I receive is about what foods to eat daily.   There are two distinct parts to the answer.

Brushstrokes Paint a Happy Life

Many a big concept is made up of small details, much as a painting is the sum of numerous tiny brushstrokes. If you want to change your life, to succeed with issues where you have been failing, then you need to start paying attention to the smaller baby steps. To wish for a better relationship is too vague to work – it will (probably) only ever remain a wish. You need to get re-involved at a new level in each tiny brushstroke of the relationship, every sentence of communication exchange (touch, gift, service, word or gesture). Make the details...
