The disease is often attributed to simply getting older, but new research suggests there could be another risk factor -- Cholesterol. Researchers wondered if cholesterol-lowering drugs -- called statins -- would reduce the risk of macular degeneration.Therefore they studied the records of more than 5,500 men and they found that those who had macular degeneration were less frequently using statins .
