Good information to know. I don't agree with the statement "incredibly important medications" as we've got lots to learn, and it will be an uphill battle to perform further confirmation of the "importance" of statins against the will of big pharma. Too much value with these drugs to jeopardize the market with further studies, and the pharmaceutical companies will not stand for any risk against the "golden eggs" that are statins. Maybe statins are of value to certain people, but there will be very slow support to better understand the precise "use cases" where statins are most beneficial. Underlying all this is the broadly misunderstood assumption that certain lipid profiles are actually valid health markers and can enable us to accurately determine one's potential for CVD/CHD based on these measurements.
