Statin drugs may very well become the largest criminal act ever committed upon the American public, eclipsing the Vioxx scandal that is responsible for more than 60,000 deaths. But no one goes to prison and the drug sales continue.
A recent (2013) study found that high cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels in subjects over 50 years was associated with lowered all-cause mortality.
Cholesterol is essential to our overall health, yet a new class of cholesterol drugs known as PCSK9 inhibitors promises to reduce LDL cholesterol levels to previously unheard of lows. This type of drug can drop your level below 50!
Ubiquinol, the reduced form of CoQ10, effectively rescues cells from the damage caused by a statin drug thereby protecting muscle cells from myopathies. Patients with statin-associated myopathy who took CoQ10 show significant benefit.
Big Pharma has scared us into thinking that if we don’t lower our cholesterol, we are a ticking time bomb that will eventually end with a heart attack. A recent study shows that women users of statins for 10 years or longer had a much higher risk of breast cancer, compared to never users.

The lipid theory of heart disease continues to crumble. There never was any solid science linking traditional saturated fats and cholesterol to heart disease, but that didn't stop Big Pharma from making billions.
Aside from demonstrating that statins provide no benefit to most people, this study also demonstrates that the so-called gold standard, randomized double blinded placebo controlled, study is a farce.
Why the FDA would approve this combination of Zetia and Lipitor is beyond belief.
