Just in case you've heard that by taking a statin you'd stave off getting dementia, or Alzheimer's disease?...you did hear wrong, I'm afraid.  The following explains more.

"After controlling for known or suspected risk factors, the researchers found patients who used lipid-lowering statins had no reduction risk of developing dementia."
The findings appear in the July issue of Archives of Neurology.

Life is not  measured by the number of breaths we take,
But by the moments that take our breath away.
 
 
Faith does not lie in trusting God to stop the storm,
But in trusting Him to enable us to walk through the storm.
