More on benefits of statins

Another article on the potential benefits of statins. As usual no definitive answers and trials still needed etc. But if it helps with Alzeimers plaques it must have some effect on MS plaques?

Given that statins lower cholesterol, perhaps this is why those that follow a low fat diet see benefits in relation to MS!

MS and the pill

It must be a slow news day as the BBC is running a story which I'm sure came out a few months ago. I'm sure my wife has some old contracetive pills in the bathroom cabinet - can't see much harm in adding them to the curcumim (other men should check with their doctors - this is not medical advice).
