I'm sure those who read the papers have seen the 'statin' information on the front page today (e.g. telegraph) and published in the Lancet.
Colin Baigent appears to be behind this. He was the person who criticised the Cochrane report that stated that statins don't appear to help in primary prevention.
I wonder if the research published today is the same as the Oxford unit published in 2010. All are 'study's of study's so new actual trials have taken place.
I think it's time to take a long look over how some organisations are funded.
Interestingly - judging by the comments on the Telegraph - most people have seen through the statin scam and are rejecting this form of blanket medication. This only serves to weaken the doctor patient trust and can't be good for GP's.
