Despite a massive investment in research and drug development, cardiovascular disease remains a significant cause of death and disability in our communities. The famous Framingham Heart Study led to a focus in terms of drugs for lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. But as we have read and seen, the issues are complex and controversial. And is this really the full picture?
