A new study clarifies that statins are the greatest medical fraud of all time. The claims made for them are false. The amount of harm they do is staggering, resulting in millions of lives devastated and ended. The worst part of all, though, is that it was entirely predictable—but studies were designed to hide the truth. The media, the health agencies, and the doctors all provided cover for Big Pharma. After all, there was money to be made.

Statins are one of the most dangerous drugs prescribed by doctors. The risks from them were obvious before they were ever marketed. Nonetheless, they are among the best selling drugs of all time. Finally, genuine science has been looking at their adverse effects and lack of benefit to document the truth that was obvious from the beginning:
Statins are the greatest medical fraud ever perpetrated.
A new review of the science reports:
The statin industry, with all of its spin-off(s), is a 20-billion-a-year industry. We are observing the revealing of the utmost medical tragedy of all times. It is unprecedented that the healthcare industry has inadvertently induced life-threatening nutrient deficiency in millions of otherwise healthy people.
The only point on which I can disagree is the statement that the travesty of statins was somehow “inadvertent”. There is, in fact, absolutely no excuse for it. (more…)
The pharmaceutical industrial complex has had great influence in scientific journals, medical literature and consequently Physicians in promoting the idea that salt is a baddy. Contrary to public perception, the reason the mantra of “eat less salt” has been advocated so strongly in decades past was due to the higher risk associated with cardiovascular disease which increased profits for pharmaceutical drugs. The proof as they say is in the pudding.
If you’ve survived a heart attack, you’ve already cheated death once — but don’t push your luck.
You might not get off so easily next time around.
I always warn my heart patients to stay off common painkillers after a heart attack — especially ibuprofen and naproxen (aka Advil and Aleve). These drugs can dramatically increase the risk of a second heart attack and even death. (more…)
Saving the Lives of Millions
At a recent conference of the Indian Society of Cardiology hosted by Madras Medical Mission, doctors focused on non-pharmaceutical interventions for heart failure. Experts are becoming increasingly aware that the last decade has seen only very small incremental improvements or benefits with newer drug therapies in the treatment of heart failure. (more…)
Using electrodes to test the electrical activity of the heart is unlikely to help doctors figure out who is at risk of coronary heart disease, according to new recommendations from a government-backed panel.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force wrote on Monday that there’s no good evidence the test, called an electrocardiogram, or ECG, helps doctors predict heart risks any better than traditional considerations such as smoking, blood pressure and cholesterol in people with no symptoms. (more…)
Most allopathic medical practitioners would argue that the process of aging is nothing more than a normal process whereby cells deteriorate at a predetermined rate controlled by genetically determined commands and heredity. Standing in stark opposition is a rapidly growing body of research and documented evidence to indicate that aging is a product of many varied lifestyle choices including physical activity, smoking, and most importantly, the type of diet we regularly consume.
In addition to being a potent cellular antioxidant, carnosine exhibits a number of other unique capabilities that help limit glycation (the abnormal linking of proteins with glucose or lipids) to prevent injury to tissues and organ structures. These actions improve cardiovascular performance to protect against stroke, heart disease, dementia, and increased susceptibility to cancer. Researchers publishing in the journal, Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry demonstrates that carnosine from supplements can help protect against a first stroke, and can significantly lower the damage caused by stroke.
