Default Statins- Anti-aging drugs - 09-02-2013, 10:17 AM

Statins, commonly used drugs for lowering cholesterol, also possess anti-aging properties, researchers have found.

According to the findings of the new study, statins cut the rate at which telomeres shorten, thus preventing aging and extending lifespan.

I have no idea where you got this info from. Sure, there may be some anti-inflammatory properties. But statins are also notorious for causing cognitive problems and achiness. I think I'd look for other anti-aging solutions!
