Doctors have been deceived by the pharmaceutical industry (with fraudulant statistics, "lost" side effect data, controlling the peer review journals, buying the regulators ... all the standard malfeasance) into believing that statins are a wonder drug. So, now they're being dished out like smarties to anyone with a pulse, including pregnant women (regardless of the drug's Class X status, not the only similarity they share with Thalidomide) to the point where now 1 in 4 Americans over the age of 45 are on statin medication. Statins of course, are a wonder drug for the pharmaceutical companies, at least until the class action lawsuits come flooding in; they are though an insidious timebomb for the unwitting "patients" to whom they are prescribed.
