Was Tim Russert on Cholesterol medication ?
It is sad to see Tim Russert pass away at such a young age. I read online:
NBC said Dr. Michael Newman, Russert’s physician, determined that cholesterol plaque ruptured in an artery, causing blood flow to the heart to be blocked by a clot.
I wonder, if Tim was on Cholesterol medication or not…. Reason why I ask is .. I am trying to find out if cholesterol medication even helps prevent such heart attacks or not. If it does not, given all the noise about the negative side effects of cholesterol medication, I wonder if it is worth taking any cholesterol medication at all!
