No: There were concerns decades ago about Clofibrate but they came to nothing. I searched the nih database for the past 20 years and found nothing, and it makes no sense biologically. If it did, the research piranhas would have grabbed it up -- it's all about trying to discover and prove something. The fibrates have saved many, many lives and i would not be concerned.
