    Be aware that you can't really get red yeast rice in the US because it's regulated by the FDA. Most of what is sold as red yeast rice is simply a pigmented form of rotting rice. True red yeast rice is just another form of statin - albeit a more natural version (oyster mushrooms are another source). These fall within the generalized class labeled fermented statins. The primary difference between those and the synthetic statins like Lipitor and Crestor is that the synthetitc variety have a fluorine atom in the molecule which makes them very active.

    I'm in the 1% of people who when taking statins exhibit cognitive impairment severe enough to be noticed almost immediately. I got lost driving the two miles home from paying my water bill. There are countless other examples that my millenial children will bring up and crack up over every time a Lipitor or Crestor commercial comes on TV. Ha, ha; Dad's the poster boy for statin dementia and alzheimers. Cholesterol is your body's repair mechanism, which is why it shows up in your arteries - it's trying to repair the damge due to inflammation. If you don't want inflammation in your arteries then don't give your body a steady diet of rocket fuel (primarily fast burning carbs and alcohol). If you take statins then what you're doing is actually inhibiting your body's ability to repair iteself - you're treating the symptoms rather than the disease. There's been no mention made in the thread to enzyme CoQ10. Doctors prescribing statins are suppose to demand that patients take CoQ10 supplements - because statins deplete CoQ10; and that leads leads to muscle degeneration if it's not compensated for. Statins are substancs that really ought to be prescribed only in the most dire of circumstances - instead doctors hand them out like candy to patients who refuse to take responsibility for their diets and exercise regimens (among other lifestyle choices).

    Why is that exactly? The same justification used to be appealed to for war heroes also. As far as being an astronaut, it was a state appartus that chose him to be one of the original seven astronauts, using criteria that reinforced the notion that the state was essential - given that I'd almost expect him to be a proponent of the state. I mean, I'm sure that there were many liberty-loving astronaut candidates who were turned away simply because they didn't fit the state-approved image.

    I don't exactly remember. But it wasn't scientific, it was an opinion.
