USPSTF Recommends Statins

In November, the United States Preventive Services Task Force recommended with a Grade B recommendation: 

Lipid screening and use of statins for adults ages 40–75 years with no history of CVD, 1 or more CVD risk factors (ie., diabetes, smoking, hypertension, or dyslipidemia) and a calculated 10-year CVD event risk of 10% or greater for primary prevention. Check out the USPSTF recommendation.
