A new study from Stanford University says high doses of statins are an effective treatment for patients with heart disease.

Over a one year period, patients who took higher doses of cholesterol-lowering statins were almost 10-percent more likely to survive than those on moderate doses.

In fact, patients treated with the maximum dose had an even better chance of survival than others taking higher-intensity statins.
