- SHOCK STATIN NEWS: Millions Taking Controversial Heart Drug UNNECESSARILY Report Confirms
by LUCY JOHNSTON, http://www.express.co.uk/
STATINS might not be worth suffering the side effects as it’s revealed millions are taking the controversial heart drug unnecessarily. What are statins and the new updated research and news explained.
Records of nearly 800,000 people aged 60 and others over 24 years showed the drugs prescribed to reduce risk of heart disease and strokes had no effect on life expectancy. The only exception was for patients aged over 65 who were already at high risk of heart problems.
This is in spite of Government-backed guidance that the drugs, linked with side effects such as muscle pain, memory loss and diabetes, should be taken by up to three million people at low or medium risk.
The research, published in leading journal Public Library of Science last week and carried out by researchers at the University of East Anglia, warned of “over treatment”.
Campaigning GP Dr Malcolm Kendrick said: “This is further confirmation of many independent researchers who have discovered statins have no benefit except in very small population of people at very high risk. “Millions taking these drugs should not be taking them.”
