Q. Although I’ve never had a heart attack, I was recently found to have a 40 to 50 percent blockage of one of my heart arteries. My cholesterol numbers were very good, and I was not put on a statin. But recent research says that there are benefits to statins that go beyond lowering cholesterol. Should I be put on a statin?
