    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.

    John Abramson, MD, from the Harvard Medical School and author of “Overdosed America” goes on to say the same thing, noting:

    “For primary prevention it turns out that there is NO reduction in mortality.”

    “There is NO reduction in the rate at which people have serious health events.”

    “There IS a reduction in the rate at which people have heart attacks, but the reduction in heart attacks is compensated for by other serious illnesses.”

    “The net effect is that you have NOT improved people’s health.”

    Harvard Medical School and 
    author of Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine

    I encourage everyone who is interested in statins or heart disease to buy the Station Nation DVD and watch both the one-hour documentary as well as the two-hours of extended interviews.

    You can buy the DVD here:


    The DVD contains the one-hour documentary plus an additional two-hours of extended interviews with Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Uffe Ravnskov, MD PhD and others.

    I enjoyed the two-hours of extended interviews every bit as much as I enjoyed the documentary.
