People who use drugs called statins to drastically lower their LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels may have a slightly higher risk of cancer, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Researchers looked at summary data from 13 different studies that had examined the relationship between statin use and cancer, with a total participant pool of 41,173. Among those with the lowest LDL levels, the researchers detected a 0.1 percent increase in cancer risk -- or one extra case per 1,000 people.
