The Great Cholesterol Hoax ... Are You Paying Too Much for Nothing?

People without heart disease get little or no benefit from cholesterol-lowering statins, researchers have warned.

A review of the medical literature showed that many of the reports they looked at -- including all but one of the reports funded by drugmakers -- were seriously flawed. Only half provided information on the side effects of the drugs, and there is evidence that the reports cherry-picked the best outcomes for presentation.

According to Reuters:

"[The review] estimated that treating 1,000 people with statins for one year would lower the number of deaths from nine to eight."
