Cardiovascular disease is the worlds biggest killer in terms of years of life lost. We know that cholesterol is responsible for around 7% of all deaths in United Kingdom. We now have the tools to lower cholesterol and 2021 to 2022 has shown the greatest change in the methodologies of lipid reduction thus far. Dr Connolly will be reviewing all of the evidence that has emerged in the last two years.
