A new review of published research from an international group of physicians and researchers is challenging the half-century long belief that LDL, the so-called 'bad kind' of cholesterol, causes heart disease. Published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology, the review also questions the use of statins as the  tool for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The study could have widespread implications as tens-of-millions of Americans currently take statins to help lower their  and risk of heart attack.
