STATINS and LIFE EXPECTANCY

Statins do NOT increase life expectancy by even one day in the general population, Malcolm Kendrick

In normal, healthy people with elevated cholesterol levels who have not had a heart attack and do not have angina, statins do NOT increase life expectancy by even one day notes Dr. Malcolm Kendrick in the wonderful documentary Statin Nation.

“People want to know, ‘If I took a statin for 20 or 30… or 40 years… how much longer could I expect to live?’” Dr. Kendrick notes.

“What we do know is that in Primary Prevention [trials, that is in people who have not had a heart attack and do not have angina] there is NO life extension.”

“There is NO increase in life expectancy.”

“You will not live one day longer.”

“You might change what is written on the death certificate, but you won’t change the date.”

“So [with] primary prevention [there is] NO increase in life expectancy at all.”

Below is the quote of exactly what he said.

STATINS AND CHOLESTEROL GUIDELINES

8 of 9 panel members who wrote the cholesterol guidelines were paid by the drug companies

Eight of the 9 panel members on the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) who wrote the cholesterol guidelines which define high cholesterol and recommend taking drugs to lower cholesterol, had financial ties to the drug companies that make statins.

The wonderful documentary Statin Nation reminds us of this.

Below is a list of all 9 members of the panel and all of the drug companies who have paid them.

Do you think it is any different when it comes to the guidelines for blood pressure or diabetes or depression or anxiety or sleep or bone-building or acid reflux or for the treatment of Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s or any other disease?

No, of course not.

It’s all the same nonsense.

Realize that when you hear about the results of a drugs study, what you are really hearing is an advertisement for the drug companies.

I no longer believe the drug research because all aspects of drug recommendations are infected with money from the drug companies.

Everyone making drug recommendations have been paid by the drug companies, and, of course, the drug companies will ONLY pay researchers who say their drugs are safe and effective and more people need them, in other words, the only researchers they will pay are those people who will help them to sell more drugs.

The researchers who are paid by the drug companies are not scientists, they are salesmen to help the drug companies sell more drugs.

I used to be interested in drug research and what the university researchers and government scientists had to say about drugs, but I am NOT interested anymore because I know exactly what every one of them is going to say: ALL of them are going to say that these drugs are safe and effective and more people need them, otherwise the drug companies would NOT pay them and would go find someone else who will help them to sell more drugs.

What a shame.
