Low cholesterol levels increase the risk of cancer notes Uffe Ravnskov, MD, PhD in the wonderful documentary Statin Nation.
He notes that a Japanese study in which they gave roughly 40,000 men small doses of the statin, Zocor (simvastatin), and followed them for 6 or 7 years, those with the lowest cholesterol levels had 3 times more cancer deaths than in men with normal cholesterol levels.

I encourage everyone who is interested in statins or heart disease to buy the Station Nation DVD and watch both the one-hour documentary as well as the two-hours of extended interviews.
You can buy the DVD here:
The DVD contains the one-hour documentary plus an additional two-hours of extended interviews with Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Uffe Ravnskov, MD PhD and others.
I enjoyed the two-hours of extended interviews every bit as much as I enjoyed the documentary.
