My comment on statins was simply me musing about what a rigorous, well designed study would show for those taking a combination of a statin and metformin. The study cited had nothing to do with statins.

My personal opinion regarding statins and cholesterol is in opposition to Attia's stance on statins and their cholesterol impacting properties. My reason is that since recent findings and history indicate that cholesterol is a weak indicator for CVD or CHD, I no longer care whether a drug with side effects lowers cholesterol including LDL. I strongly believe we're looking in the wrong places for valid cardiac and vascular health markers; therefore, any drugs designed to address these questionable indicators are also questionable and potentially dangerous for some.
