Statins May Increase Pneumonia Risk

Oops. And guess who needs statins more than intended-size folks.

Yep. Bronto-sapiens.
Statin users are more likely to develop pneumonia than people who do not use statins, according to a new study presented here at the 52nd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.

This finding is in contrast to previous studies, which have shown that statins have "a protective effect," said Kelly R. Daniels, PharmD, a pharmacist at the University of Texas at Austin.
