Cardiologists speak.Â They propose offering cholesterol-lowering statin drugs to be taken right along with your order of burgers and fries to offset the negative effects these foods have on cardiovascular health.Â Thatâ€™s right, these pills would be available just for the taking, pick them up and eat them like candy.
Well folks choose your poison,Â â€œWhile statins were generally safe they could increase the risk of muscle weakness and, in rare cases, of kidney failure, cataracts and liver problems.â€
Professor Steve Field, chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners
A pill for everything - how nice.Â Just how far will big pharma go.
