The short answer is "NO!"

Statins are the largest and smelliest red herrings ever to be dragged across the paths of mostly well-meaning health professionals.
Medical professionals have been horribly misled and they continue to be so.
Why are these drugs still being prescribed with gay abandon by intelligent health professionals? MONEY. Big money - and by a huge and very misleading fear-mongering propaganda campaign.
Statin prescribing is a multi-billion dollar industry, creating huge profits right down the chain from the manufacturer to the Dr who writes the script. Everyone, other than the poor patient, benefits. Medical journals rely on their advertising and . Not much is going to change in a hurry with this lucrative and enormous profit chain, especially if there is a large serving of arrogance and over-inflated egos to further complicate matters. Sadly, many health professionals who are in positions of power and influence are most reluctant to admit they got it wrong, let alone, were duped.
Change will have to come from the patient. Beginning with saying, "NO!"

I'll leave you with one last thing to contemplate. As you read the studies about statins, you might just notice that some of the statin formulations contain fluoride atoms in their molecules. I find it interesting how often fluoride pops up when we are discussing medicines that do more harm than good. Here for example:
Handy Tip: if a drug name has an "F" in it, such as "Fluoxetine", or "Flixonase", then the chances are that it has toxic fluoride in it. Fluoride is a potent thyroid toxin and neurotoxin of the highest order and best not to be mainlined deep into your body on a daily basis.
