Guidelines pushing ‘epidemic of misinformation’ on to GPs, warns cardiology expert


What about the number needed to treat to prevent one Mi or stroke. Is this guy seriously saying that 4s woscops et al have shown no benefit from statins. I agree there are side effects and that a mediterranean diet would help. He should write an article for Pulse detailing all of this so that we can judge the evidence and his judgement of it.
