I did recall how he quit the Zocor prior to heart surgery...and I can just imagine the doctors making a very big deal out of that fact.
A big enough deal to convince him to take Zocor again, or as many here have experienced, a different statin, often a succession of almost each one on the market...with progressively worse results.
I tried to find your post on CNN, but no luck. I can't imagine why it wouldn't be posted, given some of the strong comments that I did see. I will keep checking.
