Statins warning: Dr Chris reveals the one fruit to steer clear of to avoid side effects

A study, partially funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), looked into the effectiveness of statins on different age groups.

For this study, the BHF collaborated with scientists at the University of Oxford and the University of Sydney.

They found that for every mmol/L (millimole per litre) reduction in LDL cholesterol, statins reduced the risk of a heart attack by 25 percent and a stroke by 21 percent across all age groups.

To gather this data, the research team investigated 28 major statins treatment clinical trials, totalling 186,854 people.
