Expose on Malcolm Kendrick[edit]

GOOD expose on Malcolm Kendrick, Zoë Harcombe and other statin deniers currently going around on the mainstream news in the UK. I have been saying this all along, the statin deniers are wrong.

The deadly propaganda of the statin deniers: The drugs DO protect you from heart attacks but as this devastating investigation reveals thousands are refusing them

Probably because we, like the vast (VAST) majority of scientists, don't believe him. Scream!! (talk) 17:22, 9 March 2019 (UTC)
In that case, cite the scientific survey that proves your claim that "the vast (VAST) majority of scientists" who are informed experts in the field have never questioned or doubted the overprescription of statins that, in the research, has shown no decreased overall mortality. Otherwise, admit you're wrong, retract your position, and present an honest editing of this article. Whatever this article is, it isn't skepticism. So, what or rather whose purpose does it serve? Why not present all the available scientific evidence and all sides of the scientific debate, from The Lancet to the BMJ? That would be the scientific response to a disagreement among scientists. — Unsigned, by: Benjamindavidsteele / talk / contribs
