Low cholesterol raises your cancer risk. A new study actually links low LDL levels with an increased risk of developing cancer. And it’s not the first study to do this. In fact, more than 20 studies have been done on cholesterol and cancer - and the overall majority linked cancer with low cholesterol. Certain cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (such as atorvastatin, cerivastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, simvastatin) also deplete levels of cancer fighting CoQ10 in the body. Taking CoQ10 is critical for statin drug users. If your doc has you on a statin drug without requiring CoQ10 also, they are a very bad doctor.
