Do Statins Prevent Breast Cancer?

Henry J. Fishman, M.D., ConsumerAffairs.Com. November 10, 2005
The answer is no. Statins don’t help prevent cancer...Researchers analyzed data from 80,000 women with an average age of 65. They were all cancer-free initially. Twelve years year later 3,200 had breast cancer, including 1,700 women on statins. Taking statins had no impact at all on a woman’s risk of breast cancer. The risk was the same whether a women took satins or not and it did not matter how long she was on them.
