The Lancet Statin Study

On Friday 9th September 2016, an article was published in The Lancet with a quite extraordinary editorial. The editorial has been brilliantly dissected by Dr Malcolm Kendrick and I suggest that you check that out on his site..

The newspaper headlines were glowing “Statins prevent 80,000 heart attacks and strokes a year in UK, study finds“ and “A third of adults should take statins, new research suggests”. Taking out a full page advert, in every UK newspaper, could not have been more favourable.
