    Inhibitors
    of hydroxymethlyglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase and risk of fracture
    among older women.

     

    Statins
    seem to be protective against non-pathological fracture among older
    women. These
    findings are compatible with the hypothesis that statins increase
    bone mineral density in human beings and thereby decrease the risk
    of osteoporotic fractures.
