Heart Failure v. Cardiovascular Disease

Heart failure is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. In some cases,
the heart can't fill with enough blood. In other cases, the heart can't pump blood to the rest of the body with enough
force.

Cardiovascular disease generally refers to conditions that involve narrowed or blocked blood vessels that can lead
to a heart attack, chest pain (angina) or stroke. Other heart conditions, such as those that affect your heart's
muscle, valves or rhythm, also are considered forms of heart disease.

Whereas it is claimed that Statin Drugs reduce the incidence of Cardiovascular Disease, they also increase the
incidence of Heart Failure.
