Very interesting article that sums thins up very well. A couple of important points;

Lower cholesterol is linked to an overall 22% reduction in cardiac events in individuals WITH heart disease, that is huge.

5 years after the end of the 4S study for Simvastatin, the statin groups have a 35% reduction in LDL and 30% reduction in mortality due to heart disease to date, that too s huge.

The Treating To new Targets (TNT) is proving that lower cholesterol is medically superior.

Take a look and give it a read, it's really a great article.
