Why did the fda say about statins being used as a preventative drug?

Statins. Statins are used for treatment of hypercholesterolemia. They have been shown to prevent adverse cardiac events in people with cad.
They prevent! Research is shown that many people who take statins have fewer heart attacks, stents, bypass surgeries, and cardiac-related deaths compared with similar people who take a placebo in controlled, blinded studies! this includes people with a history of heart disease and people who only have risk factors for heart disease. The research is really quite impressive.
