Being new to statins I decided to search this forum, and HU's Cholesterol one, with the search term of "statin".
I have never seen such negativity. What I cannot understand is why as it seems to have stabilised both the cholesterol level and plaque for millions both helping prevent cardiac events and extending life. Some of the claims relating to side effects are unbelievable with about the only ones not mentioned being ingrowing toenails and unwanted pregnancy. So why all this negativity? If there was a new cholesterol lowering drug on the market I would find it easy to believe it had been orchestrated!
