[Alert] Heart Drugs CAUSING Diabetes
That’s what mainstream medicine does to your health.
They sell you a drug to fix one problem, knowing full well it’ll lead to two more.
And that’s how they get a customer for life.
This is especially the case with diabetes.
Because if you’re one of the 17 million people following certain “doctor’s orders,” you’re boosting your risk of developing diabetes by as much as 70%.
Statins are worse than useless… they’re downright deadly.
The life-wrecking side effects like muscle pain, neuropathy, liver damage, and memory loss are the least of your worries.
According to a recent study published in theBritish Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, they can increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
That’s right, when researchers followed nearly 10,000 people over 45 over a 15-year period, the people who used statins were nearly 40% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.
The statin users also had higher concentrations of serum fasting insulin and insulin resistance (no surprise there).
But this study wasn’t surprising because it wasn’t the first, second, or even third one to make the statin-diabetes connection – and the risk seems especially high for women.
In one study, statins increased the risk of diabetes by more than 50% in older women. And in another, women who used statins had a 71% elevated risk for diabetes compared to those not using statins.
Another study showed a 30% increased risk.
By now, nobody should be surprised that statins are so harmful. After all, they “work” by lowering cholesterol—and cholesterol is absolutely essential for life!
So if you ask me if they’re worth it, my answer will always be NO.
Studies have proven that don’t save lives, which means that the risk simply outweighs the benefit.
The real answer for lowering heart risk and improving mortality is to get off processed foods, especially refined starches, andvegetable oils.
Do that, and you’ll not only be lowering your risk of heart disease, but you’ll alsobe lowering your risk of diabetes too.
Now that’s my kind of medicine.
