With all this I’m not saying I’ll stop this treatment but only that I’m looking for medical advice about it.

Like the ALLHAT study, the PROSPER study (Pravastatin in Elderly Individuals at Risk of Vascular Disease), published in The Lancet in 2002 also got very little press coverage....The study tested the effect of statin therapy in high-risk elderly patients between the ages of 70 and 82. For those who did not already have heart disease, statin therapy did not reduce their risk of heart disease or stroke. It did, however, significantly increase their risk of developing cancer (p=.02).
a paper titled "Carcinogenicity of Lipid-Lowering Drugs," published in JAMA in 1996 was apparently overlooked. This paper pointed out that statins caused cancer in laboratory animals at blood levels only three to four times those typically achieved in cholesterol-lowering therapy for people.
