Question: 
My Dr. has recommended taking a low dose SIMVASTATIN.  I DON’T WISH TO DO THAT.  MY OVERALL CHOLESTERoL IS 254.  I KNOW THIS IS HIGH BUT MY HDL IS 108 TRIGYLCERIDES 79 AND LDL IS 130.  RATIO IS 2.4  AM I BEING FOOLISH NOT TO TAKE IT.  I EXERCISE DAILY.  I WEIGH 130.
 

I agree with you, but only if you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Why don’t you try:
