In a study from Sweden of 4 million patients there was no difference in heart attack rates from before statins went on the market and after, so those taking it to prevent a heart attack got no benefit.
From Russia: "A greater risk of death from heart disease in those with low blood LDL/cholesterol levels"
From Japan: "As LDL/cholesterol levels went up death rates from coronary heart disease went down"
From Framingham: "As LDL/cholesterol levels fell, CHD rates went up"
When the numbers were dropped from 240 to under 200, the 9 Doc's who made the scale, it was later revealed that 6 had ties to company's making statin drugs.
To me cholesterol lowering drugs are as big a scam as vaccines.
