Statin Wars

Statin Wars

If you are taking statin and you have muscle pain, which occurs in 20% or more of patients, then it is vital that you review and listen to what the current published data said about statin.

Dr Aseem Malhotra said that in recent research, if you take ten milligrams of statin every day for the next four years:

  1. There is an Absolute Risk of one in seventy seven chance or 1.3 % chance of you having a stroke


  • The Pharma Industry calculates this as having a Relative Risk of 48% of you having a stroke

This misinformation goes all the way to the established and reputed medical journals. 

Dr Aseem Malhotra said that one third of all medical journal articles published in the Lancet, the BMJ and JAMA between 2004 and 2006 have actually mismatched the framing of the reporting to the results. 

For example:

            If treating a disease uses the risk of developing disease from ten to seven in a thousand, the Medical Journal would often report the benefits as a relative risk reduction of 30% but the harm is 0.3% absolute risk

In 2009 a World Health Organization bulletin says it is an ethical imperative that every doctor and patient understand the difference between absolute risk and relative risk to protect patients against unnecessary anxiety and manipulation. This was stated by the man who is probably considered the world leading research on health literacy, Gerd Gigerenger, Director of Harding Centre for risk literacy in Berlin,
