Have Grandkids? Don’t Miss This
It’s hard to imagine a bigger hoax foisted on the American public than the cholesterol/statin myth.
The Big Pharma propaganda machine has managed to convince millions of people to take a dangerous drug for an imaginary problem.
These drugs cost a fortune and come loaded with side effects, yet studies continue to reveal that they do NOTHING to help you live any longer.
It’s safe to say that under no circumstances do I think statin drugs should be given to adults.
So they most certainly shouldn’t be given to KIDS—yet that’s exactly what’s going on.
Statins for 7-year-olds?
It’s not just ridiculous…it’s disgusting and downright dangerous.
I don’t care what studies come out trying to convince you otherwise.
Like a recent study published in Journal of Clinical Lipidology that reported that statins are safe for kids as young as seven years old.
A lot of people might read this article and (falsely) think that they should consider putting their kids or grandkids on statins to avoid cholesterol-related heart disease.
That’s ridiculous for two reasons.
First, this particular study was on a specific group of kids with a condition called familial hyperlipidemia, a condition in which there are too many fats in the blood. People with this condition can get heart attacks in their teens and 20s.
But to say statins are safe for these kids—just based on this study—is just bad medicine. There are numerous glaring problems with this study… like the fact that it only included 300 kids… or that it didn’t measure all potential side effects… or that it followed the children for less than three years.
Or the fact that more than half of the kids taking the statin STILL had high cholesterol levels.
But at the end of the day, this condition can be serious, and until more long-term trials are conducted, the decision as to whether or not to use statins has to be up to the doctors and the parents. Statins may turn out to be a necessary step in treatment in some of these kids with this genetic disorder.
But for everyone else—adult OR kid—not only should you NOT be taking statins, but you shouldn’t be worried about your cholesterol in the first place!
That brings to me to my second point…
Because CHOLESTEROL DOESN’T CAUSE HEART DISEASE!
In a report published just last year in Clinical Pharmacist, a Pharmaceutical Journal Publication, experts combed data from dozens of studies over two decades of time, and the results were clear: Cholesterol simply doesn’t cause heart disease.
Given everything we know about statins and cholesterol, these drugs aren’t suitable for ANYONE…not adults, and certainly not for young children.
Don’t let your grandkids get sucked into this trap.
To a brighter day,
