Statin Nation I & II
Statin Nation reveals the medical corruption that has led to the mass over-prescription of cholesterol medications (statins).

Statin Nation II includes interviews with 12 leading experts, and was shot on location in the UK, USA, Denmark, Sweden, France, Lithuania, Australia, Egypt and Japan.
