Consider the following quote from an article published in the Journal on November 8, 2012 (367:1792-1802): “Cholesterol is a fundamental structural component of mammalian cell membranes and is essential for cellular proliferation. Statins inhibit the production of endogenous cholesterol and block protein prenylation, and statin use may therefore influence

The Oxygen Model of Mental Health and Disorders

                                                                                   Majid Ali, M.D.  I proposed my Oxygen Model of Mental Health and Disorder as an extension of my Oxygen Model of Health and Disease.
