30 Adverse Pharmacological Actions Researched for Statin Drugs

Statin Drugs-Related Blogs

Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
A growing body of clinical research now indicates that the cholesterol-lowering class of drugs known as statins, are associated with over 300 adverse health effects -- research boldly flying in the face of national health policy, medical insurance premium guidelines, statin drug manufacturing advertising claims, and the general sentiment of the public, with approximately 1 in every 4 adult Americans over 45 currently using these drugs to "prevent heart disease."

Millions take toxic cholesterol and blood pressure lowering drugs that may do nothing to reduce heart disease specific mortality. What if a simple fruit extract worked better?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
New research flies in the face of a new theory that statin drugs, used to lower cholesterol, may be of value in those suffering from osteoarthritis. To the contrary, statin drugs are likely contributing to the epidemic of knee osteoarthritis in exposed populations.

Fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by chronic, body-wide pain, can be remedied with very simple dietary changes, and natural supportive remedies that have been clinically proven to have value.

Statin drugs are already known to greatly increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but newly published research now indicates they also accelerate cardiovascular complications associated with the disease, including coronary artery and aortic artery calcifications.
Written by Justin Smith
An estimated 40 million people take a statin to lower their cholesterol levels. These are one of the most widely prescribed medications in history and, of course, one of the most profitable.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
A new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention indicates that women who are long-term users of statin drugs have between 83-143% increased risk of breast cancer.

You've heard for decades about the dangers of high cholesterol, but did you know that LOW cholesterol can lead to violence towards self and other, and has been linked to premature aging, death and other adverse health effects?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
What if 90% of the peer-reviewed clinical research, the holy grail of the conventional medical system, is exaggerated, or worse, completely false? The very life's blood of 'evidence-based' medicine -- peer-reviewed and published clinical research results – which legitimizes the entire infrastructure and superstructure of conventional medical knowledge and practice is erected, has been revealed as mostly and patently false.

So, you have been told to 'lower your cholesterol' with drugs. But could it be causing cancer?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
There is a growing awareness that the unintended, adverse health effects of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs far outweigh their purported benefits. But new research now indicates that these chemicals may even be interfering with the heart-protective effects of beneficial fatty acids in those who are on them.
How many times have you heard a meal of red meat, butter, eggs or other saturated fat-laden foods called "artery clogging" or "a recipe for a heart attack?" What if we have it all wrong and those fatty meals are actually protecting our hearts in the event of an attack?

GreenMedInfo.com is excited to announce it has reached a new milestone: the indexing of over 20,000 study abstracts in support of natural medicine, all of which are free to view by anyone in the world with internet access.

In a 2008 study published in the journal Food Chemistry & Toxicology titled, "Comparative evaluation of the hypolipidemic effects of coconut water and lovastatin in rats fed fat-cholesterol enriched diet," the beverage coconut water was as effective as Merck's original cholesterol-lowering drug in positively modulating blood lipid levels in rats.

New research published in the journal PLoS indicates that the use of the cholesterol-lowing class of drugs known as statins is associated with an increased prevalence of microalbuminuria, a well-known marker of vascular dysfunction, affecting both cardiovascular and kidney disease risk.
Written by Heidi Stevenson
We keep hearing about different types of cholesterol. It's all nonsense. There’s only one cholesterol molecule, so there’s only one type of cholesterol. What started this nonsense of types of cholesterol?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Research revealing the broad spectrum toxicity of statin drugs continues to accumulate unabated. Adding to a growing body of clinical evidence that they may cause over 300 adverse health effects, a new study reveals that these cholesterol-lowering drugs may be contributing to an epidemic of arthritis and autoimmunity in exposed populations, as well.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
A recent study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that the cholesterol-lowering drugs known as statins increase the risk of diabetes within postmenopausal women by 48%. This new finding adds to a growing body of clinical evidence that statin drugs are fundamentally diabetogenic, which is not surprising considering the National Library of Medicine contains peer-reviewed, published research on over 300 other known adverse effects associated with their use.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
Over 30 billion dollars worth of this drug is sold annually and yet it may be benefiting no one. In fact, there are over 300 adverse effects associated with its use, not the least of which is the weakening of the heart muscle. In order to cover-up the symptoms of statin-induced muscle damage new "diseases" have been coined, including polymyalgia rheumatica.
Written by Dr. Michael Murray
Under the current guidelines, statins are recommended for about 15 percent of adults. With the new guidelines 44 percent of men and 22 percent of women would meet the criteria for taking a statin. Is this good, evidence-based medicine or misguided?
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
You can reverse heart disease with nutrition, according to a growing body of scientific research.
Once again science has proven that the best health prescription is an apple a day. Researchers say eating one apple every day matches the heart benefits of modern statin drugs without the harmful side effects.
Food has lost its story. Stripped of context, meaning, and reduced to its molecular composition, ancient recipes for health and joy long to be recovered.

Viagra is a multi-billion dollar blockbuster drug, but it has serious side effects. Thankfully evidence-based natural alternatives abound...
