DT for Health Secretary!!!
Lol, thought that was bears!
You beat me to it
Interestingly, I am not sure we ever established a raised cholesterol as a risk factor for women at all??
Still, if they throw money at us for doing it, we'll do it. All the valuable work has been defunded!

Of course there is an increased risk of diabetes if you take a statin-1 in 204 is the "number needed to harm"
No one cares!
Correct of course.
So you retire at 60, decide to get a healthcheck efore you go to visit your brother in Australia for the trip of a lifetime.
Suddenly you have "cholesterol" and your travel insurance doubles in cost!!
Nail, head, hit
Top of the class!
Carthago delenda est
Obvs no pharma funding of this study or the Farr Institute!!
More sci-fi fantasy from our "leaders"
Still Boris is the king of "spaffing" the money away!!
I'm with Dylan!
Beautifully articulated David, well done
Done (painlessly) this morning-no surgery for me this morning.
Weeks of sleepless nights getting my ducks in a row--for what??
Utterly agree with Samir
DecorumEst nails it perfectly.
I lost 2 hours sleep last night "refecting in the wee small hours"
Damned if I'm intending to write it down for anyone else to discuss.
