Unfortunately the impact is more like watching one of the old Godzilla movies--the good ones where the dubbing has the actual dialogue distorted by the out of sync mouth movements. Or to quote Calvin, from Calvin and Hobbes ""I wonder why Japanese people keep moving their mouths when they're through talking."
Research in the literature has described cholesterol-lowering and pleiotropic properties of statins in vivo and in vitro models. The prevailing truth states that the "effects of statins in the brain are broad and complex and that their use for treating several diseases including AD should be carefully analyzed given their multiple and broad effects". These findings will be reported in future blogs.
Dr. Lin said: “Statins are widely used in the older population to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. But recent reports of statin-associated cognitive impairment have led the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to list statin-induced cognitive changes, especially for the older population, in its safety communications.”
Dr. Lin said: “The adjusted risks for dementia were significantly inversely associated with increased total or daily equivalent statin dosage. Patients who received the highest total equivalent doses of statins had a 3-fold decrease in the risk of developing dementia. Similar results were found with the daily equivalent statin dosage.”
