New Study Shows No Link Between Statins and Breast Cancer Increase

separator

Some earlier research indicated that statin medications increased the risk of breast cancer. But new, large-scale research has shown no link at all between statins and an increase in breast cancer. For a period of seven years, the study looked at a group of 156,000 women, 11,710 of whom were statin users. During the time of the study, 4,483 women were diagnosed with breast cancer. Researchers found no statistically significant relation between breast cancer incidence and statin use.
