Cholesterol Drugs Offer Surprising Benefit

High cholesterol? Taking statins? A surprising new research study shows that patients on statins were 43% less likely to die in the months after surgery–ANY type of surgery–and significantly less likely to have complications from surgery. Why? Who knows, and who cares. It’s a good thing.

So, if you’re prescribed statins, take them. They’ll help you in more ways than just lowering your cholesterol.
