Statins and Diabetes

We are still talking about statins.  The research is coming in that statins raise blood sugar and causing diabetes.   Here is a reference that taking statins contributes to our diabetic epidemic.  

Just in case you have missed it, the numbers are in for statins.  If one hundred people are given statins, one of those people will live longer because of taking the statin.  Thirty to forty will have a negative reaction, like muscle pain which may or may not go away. The other people in the study aren’t hurt and their life expectancy isn’t lengthened.  I say they are just  supporting the drug companies.
