Scientists from the […]

  • Statins and Type-2 Diabetes.

    There has been a new study of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, and the finding was: ‘Statin use increases risk of developing type 2 diabetes’. However, according to the researchers, that risk is really a very small thing, hardly worth mentioning in light of the magnificence of the life-saving properties of the wonder drug…the Great Statin. At […]
