      My Prof. oncologist only told me last week that statin is good fighting cancer - his speciality is malignt melanome in metastasis, which I suffer from. If it is good for any other cancer I don't know. However, all this started by me reading an article in the Daily Mail (UK daily paper), where statin was mentioned in an article about brain cancer (which type I do't kow).
