(Natural News) Struggling to find clinical benefits for statin drugs and blood pressure medications, a team of researchers put two drug protocols to the test to see their effects on human thinking and memory. The research, funded by the maker of the drugs (AstraZeneca), hoped to find cognitive benefits for candesartan and hydrocholorothiazide, rosuvastatin, or a combination of the protocols.
