Lightbulb Statins increase diabetes risk:

The overall risk increase is around 9% I just read from a CME at Medscape. (can't link to it)
But is another version of the information:

Statin therapy was associated with a 9% increased risk for developing diabetes, with broad consistency in risk across the different trials. Further analysis showed that the risk of development of diabetes with statins was higher in trials with older participants.

I've been doing a LOT of cholesterol and statin research lately and finding more and more data. Firstly, I believe it's all wrong about cholesterol being the culprit for heart disease etc. There are many schools of thought out there on this theory. It's all about $$$$.
