Statin Stats

A British study of 46,262 people concludes that statin side-effects are minimal. Of all the statins reviewed, rosuvastatin (Crestor) was found to be the most efficient at raising HDL (good cholesterol) levels while fluvastatin was the least likely to cause muscle pain, a common symptom of statin use. Only one in five of the side effects in the test group was caused by statins.

Both work in an shady industry where some people's demands and pocketbooks operate at levels far beyond our society's comfort zone: Many people consider organ trafficking to be a nefarious thing.
