If You're Going To Die Soon, Do You Really Need Statins?
Why we need a study to tell us that terminally ill people can and should stop taking any drugs that aren't completely necessary at that stage in their lives, I don't know, but I'm pleased with the findings.
Going off statins didn't cause a significant increase in heart attack risks or hasten death, the study found. People lived about seven months from the start of the study. And though there weren't significant differences in quality of life, people did say they felt better and were happier to be taking fewer medications.
