The actual conclusion was: "... If validated in other cohorts, this finding warrants consideration of prospective research on statins in the adjuvant setting."
It should be noticed that statin users were undergoing surgeries for renal cancer. Liver cancer and early onset Alzheimers are also both associated with statin use. Try a Google search for more articles.

Do you know what that means and did you read the entire article? That's what we put in study presentations when the evidence supports a finding and validation is required by more research.


Here's some other articles per your request;

Absorb those and I'll post more. Your data seems dated, you may need to be reading newer articles.

I think the big debate on this site boils down to if a person accepts a given study as legitimate. One person may fully accept a study's results as the absolute truth, while someone else may not give it any credibility.

You're way off, the debate is who is willing to look forward, accept new theories and findings and who is locked in their core beliefs. Personally, to me mankind does better when science advances.

Like me, you are locked into your core beliefs, accepting only the articles which support your position.

Likewise everyone else accepts the articles which support their views.

The main reason heart disease is such a big debate, is none of us has the answers.

Yes, mankind does better when science advances. 50 years from now mankind will look back and realize how wrong all of us were about heart disease.

Not true at all, what I believe has changed many times in the past 20 plus years of doing research and If credible data comes out to the contrary I may change again. I have also intentionally not posted links to many articles and trials that would appear to support my position because I feel the message is flawed.


In 50 years I feel much more optimistic. I think we are on the right track and medicine will more forward in leaps and bounds and reduce heart disease to a minor inconvenience. You may not recognize the answers but we do have many.


You make another assumption about me that is wrong.
