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.
Research shows that if you take a statin drug, you’re likely to forfeit any and all health benefits of your exercise. Statin drugs, which millions are taking as a form of “preventive medicine” to protect their heart health, can have detrimental effects on your heart.
According to a report published by JAMA Internal Medicine, cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) have been linked to musculoskeletal and joint injuries and adverse events especially in those pursuing physical activity.
Study: Saturated Fat Not Associated with Risk of Coronary Artery Disease, Coconut Oil and Dairy Fat Healthy
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.
There’s serious confusion about cholesterol; whether high cholesterol levels are responsible for heart disease, and whether statins are really the appropriate solution to reduce heart disease risk.
Cholesterol-lowering medications do not significantly decrease your risk of atherosclerosis, heart attacks or strokes. Conventional medicine has been hijacked to believe that poisoning the enzyme that makes cholesterol lowers the risk for heart disease.
A 98-year-old researcher argues that, contrary to decades of clinical assumptions and advice to patients, dietary cholesterol is good for your heart, unless that cholesterol is unnaturally oxidized.
The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute will soon be updating their recommendations for “healthy” cholesterol numbers. Will there be any significant changes to their cholesterol guidelines?
