Statins are quickly becoming one of the most controversial drugs on the market. Experts say that there are millions of people being prescribed these hazardous drugs for no reason. Pharmaceutical dogma is so deeply ingrained that many people without heart disease are prescribed statins as a “preventive” measure — even though the side effects of the drugs are crippling. Research has shown that the purported benefits of these “medicines” are far outweighed by the consequences.
Statins are associated with a number of deleterious side effects, including memory loss and increased risk of dementia. And to make matters worse, the “science” on statins has been so clouded by Big Pharma, many are beginning to question if statins offer any benefit at all.
Statins and memory loss
As Be Brain Fit reports, the link between statin drugs and memory loss is a top concern. The number of people who are prescribed statin drugs is growing, as is the number of people suffering from cognitive decline. Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are at epidemic proportions, and it turns out some of the pharmaceutical industry’s favorite drugs are making matters much worse.
The connection between statins and memory loss is hard to ignore. As sources explain, the brain is 60 percent fat — and a majority of that fat is cholesterol. In fact, some 25 percent of the cholesterol in your body is found within the nervous system. All of your brain cells are made with cholesterol, and without enough of it, those cells will start to die.

Cholesterol is also necessary for the production of neurotransmitters — the chemicals your brain cells use to transmit signals.
To say your brain needs cholesterol to function properly is an understatement: It is what your brain cells need to survive, as well as communicate. And as Be Brain Fit explains, cholesterol-lowering statin drugs interfere with neurotransmitter production — which ultimately leads to memory impairment and other cognitive issues.
High cholesterol is actually known to help prevent cognitive decline as people age. This raises serious questions about current beliefs about cholesterol, especially in aging populations.'
