Woohoo… Let’s All Take Drugs

New regulations for statin use increase the number of people who can be prescribed statins. 

Oh, what a surprise. According to a recent story in The Washington Post, “Millions more Americans could end up taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs under new recommendations.” These new recommendations, set forth and supported by both the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, have determined that the number of Americans eligible for statin use will double from 36 million to 72 million. If you detect a touch of sarcasm in my tone, you detect right.
