IS THERE AN IRONY IN TAKING CHOLESTEROL MEDICINE?

If Lipitor or other statin drugs (such as Pravachol, Zocor, etc….)(cholesterol medicines) increase the risk of diabetes and diabetes sufferers are more likely to suffer from heart disease or a stroke than those without diabetes, would it be better for all statin prescriptions to have the warning seen on many vitamins: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease?” Just a thought after reading several medical studies linking increased risk of diabetes in women taking statin drugs. Are men next?
