    "Statins a waste of time"
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/...s-not-cause-heart-disease-new-research-finds/

    I learned this a few years ago. The whole concept was based around making money, first subsidies on studies from farm interests pushing wheat and carbs, then drug companies pushing statin drugs. The doctor who developed the lipid theory of heart disease was a certified lunatic.

    Good news @Chriza . Enjoy those cheeseburgers, just take it easy on the bread and dessert.

    The only people who need statins are those who have familial high cholesterol that can't control it with diet and exercise (usually men). The whole statin thing is a sham.
