Prescribe statins to ALL over-55's !

Yet another attempt at mass medication regardless of the possible side effects, check out the numerous comments, there's a lot of anger from those who have suffered from these very “RARE” side effects. As one who has experienced the devastating effects of statins, I fully understand their concens.

“Everyone over 55 should be offered statins to cut their risk of heart attacks and strokes, no matter how high their cholesterol or blood pressure readings, a leading doctor said last night.

Professor Sir Nicholas Wald said prescribing cholesterol-busting statins and blood pressure pills based on age alone would be much easier and quicker than the current system.”
