Thanks, Terry and Robert.

I actually googled Snuffy Myers and found his book available for $25 (plus a hefty shipping fee). I've seen one of his videos and am impressed enough that I think I'd like to get his perspective, so I ordered his book from the Prostate Forum web site.

Thanks, Jerry, I appreciate the offer. I'm interested in reading what Dr. Myers has to say.

Interesting - I was prepared to read that statins cause prostate cancer. I've been taking one statin or another since I was in my early thirties.

I found this sentence somewhat amusing: "Not only did the researchers find a reduced risk of dying from cancer, they found people taking statins were less likely to die from any cause." Wow! A new fountain of youth!

Honestly, though, I take most of these studies with a grain of salt. Wait a couple of weeks and another study will refute this one.

Did you also notice the links in the middle of the article for other stories about statins? I think blownsideways makes a good point about other cultures and their health as compared to our own where pills seems to be the answer for every problem.


Why Americans' lower cholesterol isn't all good news
Study: Statins' heart benefits outweigh diabetes risk
FDA adds diabetes, memory loss warnings to statin labels: Cause for concern?

I'll stick with my vitamin c for a while. ;)

UPDATE:
 
 
I have been taking the Krill Oil supplement now for 3 months and the arthritis pain in my finger joints is now 100% gone for the first time in over a year. My wedding ring will now easily slide over my non-swollen pain free finger joint. I have been taking only one 500mg capsule for the last month as suggested by the manufacturer and have not seen any return of the pain and swelling.
 
If you have any questions on Krill oil please shoot me an email and I will be happy to discuss it with you more.
