Study designed to see if statin manufacturers could extend their patents shows statins do not do something they aren't designed to do. Sorry, pharma.

No joke. Look at all these clots on Statin:

Oh look, another reason to not take statins.

Jesus people, they aren't called "statins." If you are feeling lazy just call them "HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors." But I prefer the more formal "3-hydroxy-3-methyl-glutaryl-coenzyme A reductase inhibitor."

It's like wiping your ass with silk.

they may not stop blood clots but they do keep your blood from turning into shepherd's pie when you forget to drink water...

Am I the only one who read that as "satins" and wondered why the response wasn't AAAAAAHHHHH?

You can buy it at the dollar store, and it'll save your life if you take about 80 mg a day (after you reach 40). Whatever blows your hair back though.

The current style of pharmaceutical regulations are more tailored to reactive medicines, which have defined outcomes. Preventative medicines are trickier because you're trying to analyze what could have happened but didn't.

My sheets are satin, I never expected them to prevent clots.

The Big Pharma-orchestrated house of cards that is statins marketing is falling apart before our very eyes.

The blowback from all those needless deaths is getting ugly.

Since I live in Statin Is, I'm getting a kick...

Amazing what is "learned" when Pfizer loses its patent.

Don' forget, the primary author of the JUPITER trial holds the patent on the CRP lab test.

That being said, we still use statins for their pleiotropic effects.

When you say "statin" everybody already knows what you're talking about, so why bother with the formality? Hell, doctors never refer to them as anything but statins anyway.

I agree, but most physicians can barely spell statin, let alone HMG-CoA reductase. Regardless, it's the WHO suffix for the class, so it's a fine name, like the cillins and the sporins.

exactly, good to know the long name because you will see 'em that way, but only a jack-ass would prefer it.

Eh, I just think it's fun to say. Although it's a surprisingly pain-in-the-ass to type.

I think they have already shown that lowering your cholesterol doesn't reduce your risk of heart disease. At least that's what the fine print in the ad says.

Want to lower your risk of heart disease without pain, hunger or stupid amounts of "exercise"? It's simple...quit eating sugars, grains, spuds and their products, and eat more meat, eggs and fat.

Or you can get the same effect with a good fish oil tablet and NOT kill your gastrointestinal tract: Link
