Just nother TV doctor on a secret payroll of a pharmaceutical company.

Niacin reduces LDL.

The problem is that niacin is known to raise homocysteine levels which are a direct cause of atherosclerosis.

If the doctor was being paid by the pharmaceutical company, why he is talking negative about the drug??
Shouldnt it be the other way around?

Thanks so much for posting this. I had to stop taking NIASPAN last fall because it made me too sick. I feel much better after reading this article.

He's being paid by a pharmaceutical company that has a cholesterol lowering drug that DOESN'T use niacin.

How would anyone here know if this doctor is being paid to claim that niacin drugs are useless in favor of some other drug? Has anyone had this doctor investigated to see who he's connected to?
