Ask Dr. Drew: Is Long-Term Statin Use Accelerating Heart Failure?

On December 29, 2023, BSI’s Emily Kaplan sat as a guest on the Ask Dr. Drew podcast. Dr. Drew, who runs a private practice in Pasadena, is well known in the media sphere for his decades of work as a personality on radio and television.

Among other topics Emily and Dr. Drew talked at length about the overuse of statins to treat coronary heart disease. Emily used statins as a case study in how medicine has broken. She then extrapolated to show how pervasive these problems are in all areas of medicine and why she and Greg are on a mission to expose all of it and give people a platform to learn more about what’s wrong, how it got this way and what might be a better route (aka probability theory).
