This is Scientific American’s 60-Second Science, I’m Karen Hopkin. This will just take a minute.

 

“Gimme the chocolate milkshake and the cheeseburger deluxe1.”

 

“That’s the cheeseburger with lettuce2, tomato, onion, fries and statin pill, coming right up.”

 

That scene could someday happen, if researchers at Imperial College London have their way. They say that including a dose of cholesterol3-lowering statin drugs could offset4 the health risks of a high-fat meal. They present their case in the American Journal of Cardiology.

 

We all know that eating a greasy5 burger is not the most heart-healthy approach to dining. It can raise our cholesterol and boost our risk for heart attacks. But could a statin pill really neutralize6 the harmful effects of a pit stop at the local burger joint7?

 

Reviewing data from some 43,000 patients involved in seven clinical trials, scientists calculated how much a person’s heart attack risk increases with fat intake8, and how much statins can decrease that risk. They conclude that a daily dose of statins would compensate9 for a daily cheeseburger and a small milkshake.

 

Dispensing10 the drug would cost pennies—not much more than the packet of ketchup11 that restaurants already give you for free. It may not be a Happy Meal. But it could be a healthier one.

 

Thanks for the minute for Scientific American’s 60-Second Science. I’m Karen Hopkin.
