Today at work we were discussing high cholesterol. I had very high (297) cholesterol in my CW days and was put on zocor. I started primal two years ago and took myself off zocor (I've never told my doc that, I just stopped taking it) and now my cholesterol is around 215. One of my coworkers said once you start taking cholesterol meds you can never stop, it will do more harm than good. Another one piped in and said a study showed that if somebody quit taking the meds, cleaned up their diet and exercised regularly, they actually had a higher chance of heart attack than the guy who stayed on the meds. I told these guys I'd like to see the study, and the sample population used, but nobody could provide anything (and I didn't feel like looking, it sounded stupid anyway). If there's any truth to it at all, it just shows how harmful that medication really is to our bodies. I also told them we'll see what happens to me in a few more years.
