‘I’ve written several posts with a variation on the title Bad News For Statins. Those have mostly pointed out the nasty side effects of statins. Doctors who push statins usually dismiss those side effects as a small price to avoid a heart attack – which they insist statins help us do.

But what if statins actually harm our hearts instead of protecting them? That’s what new research says they do. Let’s start by looking at some quotes from an article in the U.K. Express:’

‘Researchers have found that statin drugs suppress the immune response needed to make vaccines work. By taking statin drugs, you’re nullifying your body’s ability to react to an influenza vaccine. On top of that, you also have all the health risks of statin drugs themselves, which have recently been found to accelerate aging and promote dementia and muscle fatigue.

Not only do statin drugs suppress the effectiveness of vaccines, they also suppress your entire immune system, making you more vulnerable to viral infections such as influenza. Thus, taking statin drugs is much like taking down your immune system defense shields, practically guaranteeing you’ll get sick if exposed!’

‘The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued an apology to hundreds of millions of people late 2014, admitting that the flu shot didn’t work. The strain of virus manufactured in the vaccine did not match the actual dominant flu virus strains going around. Flu viruses mutate now so unpredictably that no scientist can accurately predict what each individual is bound to face in their environment.

If the CDC and the general public continue to believe in the failing, fleeting science of vaccination against individual virus strains, then humanity will continue to struggle with mutating viruses. If public health policy started to focus on the utilization of nutritional components that activate immune system health, then mankind would adapt much faster against all viruses.’

‘Researchers have developed a vaccine that is more effective than statin drugs at lowering levels of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in the body, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of New Mexico and the National Institutes of Health, and published in the journal Vaccine.

Cholesterol is an essential substance produced by the body from saturated fat. It is the precursor to vitamin D, several hormones and some digestive molecules. Its role in heart disease remains unclear. Numerous studies, however, have linked one variety of cholesterol — LDL — to higher rates of cardiovascular disease.

The best way to maintain low LDL levels is to eat a nutritious diet (high in vegetables and ideally with no trans fats), and to get plenty of exercise. Nevertheless, cholesterol-lowering statins have become the top selling drug in the United States.’

‘The truth about statin drugs is finally getting attention in scientific journals, and it’s the same truth we’ve been telling customers for years: statins are cellular poison. They accelerate aging and cause diabetes, heart attacks, muscle fatigue and memory loss.

The findings were published in the American Journal of Physiology. Lead author and stem cell biologist Professor Reza Izadpanah stated, “People who use statins as a preventative medicine for health should think again as our research shows they may have general unwanted effects on the body which could include muscle pain, nerve problems and joint problems.” In fact, after only a few weeks of use, the study revealed that statins “prevented stem cells from performing their main functions, to reproduce and replicate other cells in the body to carry out repairs…[statins also]prevented stem cells from generating new bone and cartilage…[and]increased ageing.”‘

Statins users will age much more quickly than non-users new research has found. The drugs will make users more susceptible to both physical and mental decline.

Scientists concluded that the side effects of taking the drug, which include, joint pain, memory loss, and diabetes amongst others need to be carefully weighed up by potential long term users.

‘Fewer than one in every 200 healthy patients who take statins actually benefit, doctors have warned.

Reigniting the debate over the cholesterol-busting drugs, the experts warn that too many patients are given statins without proper information about their drawbacks.

They say people should stop using them if they are suffering side effects – and call for patients to have a greater choice over taking the pills in the first place.

People should be advised to take up more exercise and improve their diet before they are directed towards statins, the experts say.’

‘A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association continues the trend of pushing for ever greater numbers of people to be permanently put onto cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, even as research is increasingly showing the drugs to be useless for preventing the negative effects of cardiovascular disease.

Statins block an enzyme necessary for the body to synthesize cholesterol, and have been definitively proven to lower cholesterol levels. Even in the absence of any evidence that the drugs actually improved long-term health outcomes, these short-term results were sufficient for the medical industry to wholeheartedly embrace statins as a miracle drug and start pushing them on ever-increasing numbers of people. Statins are among the top selling drugs in the world.’

‘Medical reports compiled on patients’ illnesses shows the cholesterol lowering drugs have been associated with a huge dossier of reported side-effects including irreversible muscle breakdown, muscle pain, blood disorders, diabetes, skin disorders, nervous system disorders and stomach problems over the last twenty years.

Between eight and ten million Britons take statins, the most widely prescribed drugs in the UK. However figures from the medicines’ watchdog have led to calls for an urgent review of the safety of statins with experts claiming the harm may outweigh any potential benefit in low risk patients.

The figures, compiled by this paper cast further doubt on NICE’s decision to lower the prescribing threshold so that the drugs are given to low risk patients and include up to 17 million patients, almost 40 percent of the adult population.’

‘The use of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs could double your risk of developing diabetes, suggests a study conducted by researchers from the VA North Texas Health System and the University of Texas Southwestern that was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine on April 28.

Previous studies have shown a link between statin use and increased diabetes rates, but the new study is the first to show that statins seem to increase diabetes risk even in otherwise healthy people who are not predisposed to the disease.’
