    My husband is on statins to lower cholesterol. I told him that fish oil can get the numbers down and possibly allow him to go off statins. He stated that fish oil helps people who have high cholesterol due to their diets but not for people who are genetically predisposed. Anybody have any thoughts on this?
    Thanks,ckmckee
