High Cholesterol’ Does Not Cause Heart Disease’ New Research Finds, So Treating With Statins a ‘Waste of Time’ – Henry Bodkin: The Telegraph
It seems like what we know about medicine is always changing, and this isn’t a bad thing. Gratefully the medical standards a century ago have evolved to what they are today due to science, enhancing what we know about health and wellness. While change can sometimes be difficult, when new data becomes available that can improve how medicine is practiced it’s important to acknowledge this information and move forward, changing the standards for care to best reflect what science has uncovered.
Our “Best Article of the Week”, by Henry Bodkin of the Telegraph, provides a look at new research published in the British Medical Journal that suggests that elevated LDL cholesterol is not linked to cardiovascular disease, and that Statins are a “waste of time” in some populations.
While this information is not new to some, and there are many variables that should be considered with further research, the medical community will need to take note of the expanding knowledge about cholesterol’s role in cardiovascular health. There are many vested interests when it comes to this corner of wellness, but hopefully medicine can keep moving forward with what it knows today for better healthcare tomorrow.
