'Statins are the most profitable medications produced by the Big Pharma Cartel. A report from the National Center for Health Statistics claims that 50% of men age 65-74, and nearly 40% of women over the age of 75 take a statin medication. A 2011 study found over 32 million Americans were taking a statin drug.
If that many people are prescribed a drug, one would assume that the drug is effective at treating or preventing something.
How effective are statin medications? Not very. This class of medications fails nearly 99% of those who take them. I have written about the failure of statins in my book, The Statin Disaster.'
