It's all about what's on the *outside* that counts...

Didn't you get that memo?

As for statins being anti-inflammatory in several systems, as you mentioned, have they also been shown to be pro-inflammatory in others? The rhabdo, liver, and other side effects would seem to show some leaning that way...

Considering the lists of sides for nearly any modern pharmaceutical, I actually find it funny that some are even called "anti-inflammatory". Aren't side effects simply inflammation in unintended places? That's just my opinion...
