Statins help heart - not affect it adversely - let's say they help in cleaning up blocked vessels in the heart (well actually they prevent them from getting blocked)

Mixing it in water !!

I am not sure how wise that is . . . side-effects are mostly with the liver and muscles.

I certainly will not advocate adding statin to drinking water.

But what if your heart heart has other problems or is fine, would or could it have an adverse affect? I don't think they should just dump stuff like that n the water i don't think they will.

Instead why don't people eat right, it is easier to be proactive then reactive, i may not be the perfect weight for my height or the best eater, i do love french fries but overall I try to eat well. I think it is the people who raise there kids in restaurants that run into later heart issues , or are more likely too.

Statins as such do not have any significant adverse effect on the heart per se.

No offence - but it is even easier to expect people to be responsible for themselves - in reality - most are not.

I always shudder to think of that young South Asian secretary who came to the clinic, at an interval of 1 year, accusing us for not following her up, when she missed 6 appointments during that period . . . interestingly, she was a case of multi-drug resistance tuberculosis who did not complete her treatment (she argued that she did not receive any letter asking her to continue on medication after she mised her first appointment and did not ask GP to represcribe her tablets). Alarmingly, she was feeling unwell and loosing weight - she had a recurrence . . . with two kids at home.

We were responsible for not being pro-active - it is only when I went to that medical firm and went through her notes following a missed appointment, alarmed, contacted her GP, she made the appearance. She completely absolved herself of any responsibility - refused to acknowledge that she has been told how serious her disease is - I got very angry and showed her notes - where it was documented that consultant spoke to her and explained how serious her condition is.

She was very upset - and complained against me.

This is about 8 yrs back, now we have a Special nurse in most hospital trusts who keep an eye on patients - so that this never happens again.

That is awful some people want miracles...of course what I said is easier said than done, most things that are good for you are harder.

It's like me and my iron I was told I was amenic ( I don't feel any different) and to take it and I felt sick when I took it so I stopped. But I would never blame my doctor. He tried some different iron supplements and they all gave me problems. He is just a man a really nice smart one but he just does what he can. I don't know what anemia does cause I can't feel it maybe it went away. But he told me what to take I didn't do it that is on me.

I can't believe they complained when they missed 6 appointments that is not right.

Actually, Creatine has been shown to have some benefit for strength training .. that one has been studied.

I used to take before and after workout but I don't want to load up too much. It's also been said that it can cause problems with the kidneys. But it has taken my endurance to a higher level as well as make recovery time much faster. As for Whey, I really don't need it since I take protein from many sources (soy milk/fish/chicken/etc.)

Does anyone know about those protein drinks, I have some I just forgot about it lol. I am not a huge meat eater so I thought i should try it, I didn't really notce anything when i was drinking them except that if they expect peopl to replace a meal with it they are crazy. My particular one isn't for meal replacing and i mixed flax seed and greens+ into it. Do they cause weight gain, I never took it steady enough to see if it would or not?

I've taken Whey Protein before and made me gain weight. Nothing wrong taking it if you have a fast metabolism and having trouble gaining muscle. But, like any sports-performance supplement, you have to work out and eat right in order to get results.
