Still Taking Statins? Better Read This FAST!
I’m not one to say I told you so… but sometimes I just can’t help myself.
I’ve been railing against statin drugs for years, and have been called everything from crazy, to a quack, (to names I won’t mention here) because of my radical stance on these cholesterol meds.
But now I couldn’t be happier that I’ve been keeping my patients off of statins.
Because a new analysis proves what I’ve been saying all along: Statins do more harm than good.
And the sooner you quit them, the better.
This most recent report was published in Clinical Pharmacist, a Pharmaceutical Journal Publication. A handful of experts from multiple countries combed data from DOZENS of studies over two DECADES of time.
Here’s what they found:
- Cholesterol doesn’t cause heart disease.
- Statins don’t extend lifespan
Music to my ears!
Cholesterol has been cast as the villain in the heart disease story. But in reality, this compound is responsible for countless processes in our bodies that affect everything from our hearts to our brains.
After reviewing all the evidence, the researchers found that taking statins every day for 5 years increased lifespan by just four days.
When you consider the MASSIVE side effects associated with these drugs (muscle pain, memory loss, mental confusion, diabetes, cataracts, heart failure, and more), there’s just no other way to look at it: The risk simply isn’t worth the benefit.
Seventeen million Americans take statin drugs every day – with the false hope that popping this pill will be the answer to their heart problems.
Hasn’t anyone noticed that it’s just not working?
Despite the vast number of people on statin drugs, heart disease is STILL the number one killer in the U.S. If statins were the savior the drug companies made it out to be, shouldn’t we be winning this battle with heart disease?
We should…but we’re not. Because statins don’t help anyone but the people who sell them.
Folks, there’s just no shortcuts to good health. And there are no magic pills that cancel out a lifetime of unhealthy living.
If we want to put a dent in the heart disease epidemic, the only way we’re going to do it is by eating healthy whole foods (preferably organic), getting a little exercise, and spending plenty of time in the sun.
To a brighter day,
