I was listening to ReachMD on XM radio a few weeks ago and a medical doctor was talking about statin drugs. Lipitor always comes to mind because it is so well marketed on TV.
This medical doctor was telling his peers to always prescribe a statin drug otherwise they'll be looking at a lawsuit if the patient has a heart attack.
This is quite disconcerting to me because lawyers are telling doctors how to practice. Cholesterol is just one part of the heart health picture. What if someone had a heart attack because of a non-cholesterol cause? How does a doctor defend him or herself from a sympathetic jury?
The incidence of heart failure is now higher than heart attacks and heart attacks have only decreased slightly. So, tell me how the statin marketers have manipulated the numbers?
Has anyone talked about the elderly doing better with higher cholesterol?

Well, if doctors are more worried about lawsuits instead of what it really takes to teach people how to be healthy, it is a sad sad time for Americans.
