Marking the beginning of another dark chapter in the history of medicine, The American National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), via the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology have just announced a radical change to the way that statins will now be prescribed.
Millions take these blockbuster drugs for 'heart protection,' and yet they are actually killing the well established heart protective properties of fish oil.
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.
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.
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
Heart disease while still the #1 cause of mortality in the developed world, can be prevented and even reversed disease with nutrition, according to a growing body of scientific research
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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
Boosting testosterone is becoming all the rage today, but unless you activate your body's innate ability to do it naturally there are some very serious side effects that could get in the way of your health
The chemical war against cholesterol has been based on statistical deception and the active covering up of over 300 adverse health effects they are known to produce.
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?
So, you have been told to 'lower your cholesterol' with drugs. But could it be causing cancer?
The neurotoxicity of statin drugs are back in the news. Following on the heels of the FDA decision earlier this year to require statin drugs manufacturers to add "memory loss" as a side effect of this chemical class, a new study in published in the Journal of Diabetes reveals a clear association between statin use and peripheral neuropathy in a US population 40 years of age and older.
With the cholesterol-lowering class of drugs known as statins being widely promoted for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease, despite their having over 300 documented adverse health effects (including heart failure!), how does chocolate sound as a viable, heart-friendly alternative?
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.
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.
Cholesterol-lowering drugs have been known to hit men 'below the belt' for years, contributing both to erectile dysfunction and low testosterone. Now, new research reveals they actually damage men's testicles and sperm.
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
$80 million dollars raised, and yet none of it will likely go to the proven natural interventions that could alleviate the suffering of those with ALS.
Statins are taken by millions of people worldwide, but most are unaware that their use has been linked to worsening eye health, along with over 300 adverse health effects.
