Study: Lowering LDL Raises Incidence of Blood Cancer and Sepsis

Page Changed: Dangerous Drugs for People with Diabetes

Added link to study that found "Each 1 mg/dl increase in LDL was associated with a relative reduction of 2.4% in the odds of hematological cancer (OR 0.976, 95% CI 0.956–0.997, p = 0.026). Low LDL levels also increased the odds of fever and sepsis."
