Are statins dangerous?

Studies show increased Death Risk in multiple studies.

It’s hard to believe one of  the greatest hoaxes on the American public still goes unchallenged by the mainstream media. Millions upon millions gobble down statins drugs that are of dubious benefit and now there is evidence of a clear and present danger.

 

One of the only doctor’s/researchers in the country to get a government grant to study the negative effects of statin drugs has some sobering conclusions.

 

Statin drugs have not been proven to prevent heart attack in men and women over 65 and do not work in women according to Beatrice Golumb a Cholesterol researcher at San Diego State University.

 

Now never studies show that there is an increased risk of death with statins.
A study published in the journal Critical Care Medicine, showed the lower a patient’s cholesterol the higher the risk of dying.

The dirty little secret is that over half the people who have heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels..
Research published in The Lancet in 2001 studied mortality in elderly people, and found that low cholesterol was associated with a higher risk of dying.

Two studies published in pub-med show that statins increased plaque formation.

 

A study found that instead of reducing coronary artery calcification, patients who took statins had an increase of 52 percent when compared to those who didn’t take statins.[1]
Not only did stains increase plaque[2] they increase incidence of diabetes.
To be honest statins only really work in 1 to 3 out of every 100 people who take them.
However they are the biggest money makers for the pharmaceutical industry.

 

Almost 30% of adults are on stain therapy.
The only group that benefits is those who have already had a heart attack and the benefit is moderate at best.

 

It does not seem prudent to take a drug that has little to no benefit and increases the risk of plaque, diabetes, muscle weakness and memory loss.
