A recent widely publicised Lancet review of statin efficacy and safety data generated more controversy than it resolved.1  Led by Professor Rory Collins of Oxford University, the review claimed that the benefits of statins have been underestimated and the risks exaggerated.  Claims of statin intolerance in up to 20% of patients, the review argues, are not supported by large-scale evidence from randomised trials.  In fact, Collins et al. claim that statin therapy is no less well tolerated than placebo.
