Statins have never been shown to be effective for women of any age,
men over 65, or men without pre-existing heart disease. Early studies
did suggest that statins are effective for men under 65 with pre-
existing heart disease, but later, more rigorous clinical trials has
not confirmed this benefit.
In addition, statins have been shown to have serious side effects and
complications in up to 30% of people who take them. Studies have also
shown that the majority of these adverse events go unreported, because
doctors are largely unaware of the risks of statins.
