Statins

So I have heard many times on random YouTube videos that Statins only increase your lifespan by 2-3 days. Today I decided to finally search for this paper and I found it:

Results 6 studies for primary prevention and 5 for secondary prevention with a follow-up between 2.0 and 6.1 years were identified. Death was postponed between −5 and 19 days in primary prevention trials and between −10 and 27 days in secondary prevention trials. The median postponement of death for primary and secondary prevention trials were 3.2 and 4.1 days, respectively.

So now when people tell you statins save lives, you can pull up this paper and say you have proof!
