THAT'S THE POINT!!! The bottom line is that the current results indicate that statins REDUCE HEART ATTACKS by 50%. That's a phenomenal result!!!Doc,Your point is an interesting one, but surely you admit that cholesterol serves an important function in the body and that one's cholesterol levels can get too low. I wonder if the studies that produced these impressive results looked at total mortality as well as cardiac events. Very low cholesterol can do a number on depression, and has been indicated in an increased risk of suicide, as well as other physical issues. I often find it interesting to read the actual study report. They have to explain any "outliers" to the data they threw out, and how the study was designed, which can sometimes give insight into the validity of the study.InParadise,In God we trust, all others show data.
