Studies suggest a decreased risk of high-grade prostate cancer in men with lower circulating total cholesterol and that statins may protect against aggressive disease. Confirmation in additional populations and examination of associations for lipoprotein subfractions are needed. We examined prostate cancer risk and serum total and HDL cholesterol in the ATBC Study cohort (n = 29,093). Cox proportional hazards models were used to estimate the relative risk of total (n = 2,041), non-aggressive (n… CONTINUE READING
