According to The Consumerist, British researches are suggesting that fast-food chains should provide, next to their fatty-meals, statins, a class of drugs which are used to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood.

Since the medication can lower the chances of having a heart attack by about the same level that a fast food meal increases it, the scientists believe that customers should be able to grab up statins at McDonald's just as easily as they snatch up condiments.

They noted, "It would cost less than 5 pence ($0.07) per customer -- not much different to a sachet of ketchup."
