Interesting - I was prepared to read that statins cause prostate cancer. I've been taking one statin or another since I was in my early thirties.
I found this sentence somewhat amusing: "Not only did the researchers find a reduced risk of dying from cancer, they found people taking statins were less likely to die from any cause.
" Wow! A new fountain of youth!
Honestly, though, I take most of these studies with a grain of salt. Wait a couple of weeks and another study will refute this one.
