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.

How long will it take medical doctors and their patients to see the truth? Will it take being physically blinded before they arrive at this awareness? Eye-associated adverse effects, including loss of vision, may be the tipping point when it comes to recognizing the profound range of damaging health effects associated with statin drug use.

Following in the wake of new U.S. guidelines that will require 70 million Americans take statin drugs, new research finds they increase the risk of herpest zoster (shingles), adding to the over 300 adverse health effects linked to this drug class.
Written by Sayer Ji, Founder 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.

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.

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.

The benefits of grape seed extract in cancer are well documented, but modern medicine won't do anything with it until the mechanism of action has been found, so that it can be isolated, purified, made poisonous and owned by a single company for enormous profits.

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.

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 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?

There is a little known natural extract of plant waxes known as policosanol, extractable from sugar cane, yams, and beeswax, which has been giving some of the more profitable drugs on the market a biomedical beating since it was first investigated in clinical trials by the Cubans in the 1990's.
Written by Heidi Stevenson
Aside from demonstrating that statins provide no benefit to most people, this study also demonstrates that the so-called gold standard, randomized double blinded placebo controlled, study is a farce. Add to that, though, the fact that statins have severe and deadly adverse effects, it's apparent that these drugs are doing great harm while providing no benefit.
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.
