Excellent article. Notice it said "perceived benefit"

This underscores the point I have been trying to drive home for years. The "benefit" from statins is only perceived in the mind of the consumer, based upon its ability to lower cholesterol, and consumer perception this somehow translates into lower risk for heart disease.
