It's a matter of balance misterblue. Have you asked your doc about the "10%" figure.

The evidence is for statins. We may be proved wrong in time, but we have to go on what we've got now, and, if, for example, you could "grade" the evidence for their use, it would be grade 1, out of a scale of 1 to 5.

You've got every right to take decisions for yourself, even if we (the prescriber) think those decisions maybe unwise.
