Hi Lori. Smile,  I'm busy and didn't read this article, but lately I"ve seen 2 or 3 Drs on tv that state statins are not effective in women. One came right out and said they don't work for us. I was on Pravachol for a few years, then when I started seeing the Carido he put me on  Crestor. My cholestrol did come down more after starting Crestor, but I worry about side affects. Just wondering what everyone else thinks. One Dr said it's more important for us to stop the inflammation in our bodies than to worry so much about cholestrol. 

Have a great day,

Rhonda in CA

This is actually very interesting and should really get much more studies done.
