Study: Cholesterol-lowering Statin Drugs May Cause Parkinson’s Disease

A Penn State Medical School epidemiological study, reported by Science Daily, is urging physicians to not prescribe statin drugs for Parkinson’s disease symptoms. Evidently, due to earlier studies, cholesterol reducing drugs were considered preventative of Parkinson’s disease.

Amazingly, this practice had been going on for some time, thanks to several questionable, and conflicting studies of statin use and Parkinson’s disease. The most recent study was conducted at the Penn State College of Medicine earlier this year (2017.)

Statins linked to an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease

Each year, around 50,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the U.S. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that as many as 500,000 American citizens are currently living with the illness.
