[ALERT] Mainstream Drug CAUSING Heart Failure?!
All prescription drugs come with risks… but some drugs are worse than others.
And there’s one in particular – taken by millions of Americans – that can actually increase your risk of dying.
That’s right. This popular drug can kill you.
And a recent study revealed that it can be especially dangerous for women.
I’ve told you before that beta blockers are no good.
And the bad news about these meds keeps turning up.
These drugs can be life-saving if you’re having a heart attack, but they were never meant to be taken long term.
Yet doctors are routinely prescribing them for people with conditions like high blood pressure and irregular heartbeats–and these people everywhere are paying the price.
A study has just found that beta blockers can be especially damaging for women.
The study included nearly 14,000 people from 12 European countries who had hypertension but no history of heart disease.
The researchers found that women taking beta blockers had a nearly 5 percent higher rate of heart failure after being admitted to the hospital with acute coronary syndrome, compared with men.
And the women who suffered from a serious heart attack (called a STEMI) had a 6 percent higher rate of heart failure than men who experienced the same attack.
I find it ironic that a drug used to treat high blood pressure—which increases the risk of heart problems—would actually CAUSE heart problems.
That’s mainstream medicine in action, folks.
The study didn’t look into WHY women were at a higher risk than men. The researchers theorized it could be because of a bad interaction between hormone replacement therapy and the beta blockers, but no one knows for sure.
What I DO know for sure is that you don’t need to take beta blockers to get your blood pressure under control.
Your blood pressure is almost entirely related to your diet and lifestyle—which means making certain simple fixes could help get your blood pressure back in the normal range… and help get you off of these dangerous drugs (with your doctor’s help, of course).
Don’t get me wrong, some drugs are necessary, beneficial, and even life-saving.
But beta blockers aren’t one of them (especially not when taken long-term).
