The data on statins in primary prevention of heart disease is rather pathetic. It is estimated that 100 people would have to take statins for a lifetime to prevent one heart attack death.  On the other hand, 12% of those same 100 people will have likely developed diabetes by taking statins.  That’s not a good trade-off in my opinion.
