5% of the patients taking placebo. Thus, evidence is accumulating that pharmacologic intervention with cholesterol-lowering drugs can reduce the incidence of CHD within a few years. It is also becoming apparent that the greater the magnitude and duration of the decrease in LDLcholesterol and the increase in the HDL-cholesterol, the greater is the reduction of CHD risk.

A scrutiny of the evidence provides no grounds for such concerns. The majority of prospective epidemiological studies show no inverse relationship between serum cholesterol level and total or colon cancer risk, taking into account a preclinical cancer effect, and there iS,likewise, no significant increase in cancer risk in intervention studies to lower CHD risk.
