Comment by Chris Sivewright, writer of Transformation.
In reply to Josh Hall's review, I would like to be clear that the reference to cancer was not intended as a joke and if offence was caused it was entirely unintentional. Below is the relevant portion of the script, which I hope illustrates what I mean.
GEORGINA/STEPHANIE/JANE: No! Well, probably not
JANE: memory loss
JANE: impaired immunity system
STEPHANIE: Vitamin D is the key
STEPHANIE: with vitamin K
STEPHANIE: supplements CQ10
JANE: Krill oil
STEPHANIE: Fish oil
STEPHANIE: eat Ginger
JANE: high carb diet
JANE: not low carb
STEPHANIE: maybe…maybe high fat, high protein
JANE: maybe…probably not
The comment is based on research done by Chang CC, Ho SC, Chu HF, Yang CY: ‘The results of this case-control study suggest that statins may increase the risk of prostate cancer.'
