Hyperlipidemia is protective against cancer comorbidities : But statins may the reason!! -Abstract submitted at BCS 2016 [OMG!!]

A research abstract accepted by British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) for BCS conference 2016, shows the “real quality of research and conference.”

“Abstract: HYPERLIPIDAEMIA REDUCES MORTALITY IN BREAST, PROSTATE, LUNG AND BOWEL CANCER

Conclusion: We have demonstrated for the first time that comorbid hyperlipidaemia has a highly protective effect on mortality amongst patients with the four most prevalent cancers in the UK. The underlying reasons for this are yet to be determined but treatment with statins may contribute. This potentially beneficial effect of lipid-lowering medications amongst cancer patients should be further investigated.”
