    STATINS and DIABETES

    Statins increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 25-30% notes Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

    “Statins cause Type 2 diabetes. They increase the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by about 25 to 30 percent. That is now widely accepted,” notes Dr. Malcolm Kendrick in the wonderful documentary Statin Nation.

    Malcolm Kendrick is the author of The Great Cholesterol Con.

    STATIN SIDE EFFECTS

    Statin-induced side effects: depression, fatigue, memory loss, arrhythmia, Katherine Faraday, MD

    “That was the worst I ever felt in my life,” notes Katherine Faraday, MD in the wonderful documentary Statin Nation.

    “There were times when I wondered if I really¬†wanted to go on living.”

    Below is the quote of exactly what she says in the movie about the side effects she experienced—fatigue, depression, memory loss, colitis, and dry eyes—and how neither she nor her doctor realized for 2 years that ALL of the problems she had developed were being caused by the Lipitor (atorvastatin) she was taking to lower her cholesterol.

    Statins are destroying the lives of countless people around the world, Malcolm Kendrick, MD

    CHOLESTEROL MYTHS

    Cholesterol-lowering May Shorten Your Life by Uffe Ravnskov, MD PhD

    According to conventional wisdom it is wise to lower your cholesterol if it is too high.

    The main reason for this advice is the observation that people with a high cholesterol more often get a heart attack than people with a normal or a low cholesterol.

    The observation is correct, but it does not mean that the high cholesterol is the cause of the heart attack (see section 1). If it were, lowering of the high cholesterol by any means should prevent it, but it doesn´t (except with the new group of cholesterol-lowering drugs, the statins; see below).

    [This article was written by Uffe Ravnskov, MD PhD, and is an excerpt from his book The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the Fallacy That Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Cause Heart Disease.]

    [Note: The book Fat and Cholesterol are Good for You is a shortened, simplified and updated version of Dr. Ravnskov's first book, "The Cholesterol Myths".] Read the entire article | Email this article

    STATINS

    Statins For Children - This Is Madness by Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con

    When someone sent me a copy of an article in the [ December 2, 2003 ] Washington Post, stating that more and more doctors now think that children as young as four should be put on statins, my fingers started to itch.

    TNT STATIN STUDY SHOWS STATINS DO NOT REDUCE TOTAL MORTALITY

    Thank God He Didn’t Die Of Heart Disease Doctor Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

    There are those of us, poor misguided fools, who believe that the main point of taking drugs is to prevent an early death. We are clearly wrong. The important thing is that you must not die of heart disease. For dying of heart disease is clearly much worse than dying of something else.

    STATINS

    Statins treat lab values, but not much else says Michael Eades, MD

    "This study shows NO evidence that lowering LDL cholesterol decreases the prevalence of heart disease… And [yet] what [the authors of this paper concluded] from this data is that we simply need to treat more people. Brilliant!"
    This is a quote from Michael Eades, MD author of "Protein Power" on his blog, Nov 19, 2009. Read the entire article | Email this article

    RED YEAST RICE

    Red yeast rice extract reduces deaths by 32%

    A 4-year study of Red Yeast Rice extract known as Xuezhikang which lowers cholesterol, at a dose of 600 mg twice a day,
    • Reduced coronary events by 37%

    • Reduced death from coronary heart disease by 31%

    • Reduced strokes by 44%

    • Reduced the need for coronary bypass surgery by 49%

    • Reduced cancers by 51%

    • And, most importantly, reduced all-cause mortality by 32%.
    These benefits are vastly superior to any study I ever seen done with the cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins. Read the entire article | Email this article

    STATINS

    Statins INCREASE the risk of dying by 1% over 10 years

    An analysis of many studies found that cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins INCREASED THE RISK OF DYING by one percent over 10 years.

    This according to an excellent Letter to the Editor by Joel Kauffman, PhD, Professor of Chemistry Emeritus from the University of the Sciences of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that was published in the Wall Street Journal on May 25, 2003. Read the entire article | Email this article

    STATINS

    Two cholesterol drugs, Zocor plus Zetia, increased the risk of death by 4%, cancer 48% - Part 1

    A 4-year study found that the combination of two cholesterol-lowering drugs -- Zocor (a statin) plus Zetia -- did not reduce the total risk of death.

    In fact, the overall death rate was 4% higher in people given these drugs.

    This may have been due to random chance, but at the very least, it shows that that these drugs did absolutely no good whatsoever.

    STATINS

    Two cholesterol drugs, Zocor plus Zetia, increased the risk of cancer by 48% - Part 2

    How many doctors and patients would view the recommendations on cholesterol differently if they knew that 8 out of 9 of the scientists on the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) panel, which is a group from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) that has issued national recommendations on cholesterol levels and who should be taking these drugs, have taken money or stocks or stock options by the drug companies selling these drugs?

    STATINS

    Zocor (a statin) plus Zetia increased cancer 48%, fatal cancers 67%

    This 4-year study found that the combination of two cholesterol-lowering drugs - Zocor (a statin) plus Zetia - did NOT reduce the total risk of death.

    In fact, the overall death rate was 4% higher in people given these drugs.

    This may have been due to random chance, but at the very least, it shows that that these drugs did absolutely no good whatsoever.

    People given these drugs had 48% more cancer ( 105 cases versus 70 cases ).

    People given these drugs had 64% more cancer deaths ( 39 deaths versus 23 deaths ).
