Statins reduce risks of fatty foods

Some researchers say fast food restaurants should hand out cholesterol-lowering Statin drugs with their burgers and fries.

Scientists say the Statins could "neutralize" the heart risks after eating fatty foods.

But the researchers warn that Statins alone do not save lives.

They say the drugs may help prevent heart attacks, but people need to watch their diets and cut down on fatty foods to remain healthy.
