Heart Meds Tied to DEADLY New Risk
Beta blockers are one of those drugs that drive me crazy.
Because there’s no good reason they should be killing people.
But they are.
You see, beta blockers can actually be really helpful for people who have had heart attacks or who suffer from congestive heart failure.
But the greedy pigs at Big Pharma kept pushing these drugs for more and more uses – even when there was no good research to support it.
Now, it looks like taking a beta blocker for a certain condition can send your risk of dying through the roof.
Here’s what you need to know to stay safe.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 100 MILLION adults have type 2 diabetes—representing about 10% of the adult population.
Since diabetics have an extremely high risk of heart disease, it’s safe to assume that a good portion of diabetics are taking beta blockers.
And that’s a big problem.
Because according to the results of an alarming new study, beta blockers could be DEADLY for people with diabetes.
A study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings studied more than 3,000 diabetics and found that those taking beta blockers had a significantly higher risk of dying than those not taking the drugs.
And for diabetics who ALSO had coronary heart disease, the risk was even higher.
While beta blockers can boost survival in people with heart attacks, they DON’T improve survival in patients with chronic heart disease—and we have no idea what their benefits are for diabetics with coronary heart disease.
That’s a big fat question mark in the face of a very damning study.
If you’re diabetic and taking beta blockers (especially for coronary heart disease), it may be time to schedule a talk with your doctor.
Ask him if you need to still be on the drugs, and if there’s any actual research that they’re effective for your condition.
Don’t be surprised if he can’t quote or produce any of this research.
Because it doesn’t exist.
To a brighter day,
