Prof. Ray defends the proposition 'Statins are enough for the prevention of CVD' and considers the standpoint of his opponent in the plenary 'Controversy session' entitled 'Statin therapy vs. novel interventions'. Ray thinks more CVD could be prevented if more people globally would have access to statins. Is it time to add statins to drinking water, then?
