    Here's one more reason to take your cholesterol meds

    Statins can protect against flu!

    Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs like Lipitor, Zocor (simvastatin) and Crestor reduce inflammation and can help to reduce the complications of the flu.

    Uh, it's a huge leap to go from "cholesterol-lowering drugs can help to reduce the complications of the flu" to "cholesterol-lowering drugs protect against flu".
