In a recent study of more than 400,000 Canadians Dr. Harminder Singh of the University of Manitoba demonstrate that there is no connection between risk of colorectal cancer and the use of Statins.
“This study did not find any statistically significant reduction in colorectal cancer risk with regular use of statins, irrespective of the dose or duration,”
“The best-designed studies of the issue indicate that statin use is neither a major risk factor nor a protective factor for colorectal cancer and that we have come very near to the end of the road for the hypothesis relating statins to colorectal cancer risk.”
