Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs do NOTHING but Harm You
Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs were first invented to help lower cholesterol because it was believed that with lower cholesterol you would lower your risk of heart disease.
So prescriptions by the tens of millions literally began happening. Cholesterol-lowering drugs became and still are the best-selling drugs in history, taken by tens of millions of people. And while the pharmaceutical and medical establishments proclaim them to be "perfectly safe" - they are not.
And not only are they NOT perfectly safe, they actually do nothing to reduce the risk of heart disease. The original reason they were invented and prescribed in the first place.
And if you have any doubt about cholesterol lowering drugs NOT preventing heart disease simply listen to the next commercial you hear for lower cholesterol mediations. They say themselves at the very end of the ad that this drug does nothing to prevent or reduce the risk of heart problems.
But now so many people are under the illusion that the cholesterol itself is bad and must be lowered. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Again, to repeat myself, it was originally thought that lowering your cholesterol with medication would reduce the deaths and problems from heart disease. Time has proven this is just not the case.
So by taking cholesterol medication, you are really doing nothing but giving yourself more serious problems down the road.
So, what are some of the side effects that have been clearly associated with "the most popular drugs in history"?
- liver and kidney failure
- irritability and hostility
- permanent nerve and muscle damage
- cognitive decline and memory loss
- fatigue and intolerance to exercise
- the destruction of vital CoQ10, leading to heart failure
Any one of these would be a hefty price to pay.
Especially considering that, in most cases, an appropriate diet, nutritional supplements, and physical exercise can normalize your cholesterol without any negative side effects.
AND normalizing your cholesterol this way actually does reduce your risk of heart disease.
So why does the drug appear to be so harmless?
Because when a subject drops out of a study, the FDA allow the drug companies to throw that person out of the results of the study.
And many of the people who drop out of the studies drop out BECAUSE of the side effects. Therefore many of the problems with drugs happen in the studies, but because people drop out of the study because of them, the Drug companies do not have to report those side effects.
These subjects were then labeled "non-compliant," allowing researchers to "scrub" them from the results.
