I have nine maternal aunts (yes, count 'em, nine).  All blood aunts, not 
counting those by marriage to the 13 blood uncles.   Of those nine (actually 
eight, since one is my mother)  aged 72 to 85, two agreed to take statin drugs to 
treat high cholesterol - although all nine sisters were diagnosed with high 
cholesterol.  Those two contraced liver cancer (one died and the family is 
gathered around the other).  The other seven are fine and healthy.  

And this to treat a condition with no *direct* link to any disease.

Made the drug companies rich though, didn't it.  What's a few livers in the 
grand scheme of things!
