When it comes to blood pressure, mainstream medicine couldn’t get things more wrong if they tried.
During WWII, Army guys and gals had a word for when things got this mucked up… FUBAR.
But since we’re in polite company, I’ll give you the clean translation of the word, which is, “fouled up beyond all recognition.”
And it fits PERFECTLY in this situation.
Because let’s face it, what DON’T they get wrong?
They insist you have to avoid things which are actually GOOD for your heart health such as coffee, eggs, and good fats.
And their newest blood pressure guidelines? Laughable.
But worse, they’re dangerous, forcing many folks onto sickening meds who never needed them in the first place.
MILLIONS taking blood pressure drugs
Maybe YOU’RE one of the 30 million victims who instantly became “hypertensive” in 2017.
That’s when the mainstream suddenly decided to change the definition for high blood pressure.
If so, there’s something you NEED TO KNOW.
The well-known side effects of blood pressure pills such as dizziness, headaches, and an irregular heartbeat might soon look like child’s play.
Because it turns out your blood pressure med could give you cancer.
And one of the best things you could do for your health is to toss them in the garbage.
In fact, things are so FUBAR that the FDA has stepped in with a rare recall.
It turns out many common blood pressure pills could be laced with KNOWN carcinogens.
2 carcinogens found in blood pressure pills
The recall started back last year.
But in just the few weeks since the calendar turned over to 2019, we ALREADY have had FOUR new recalls.
Here’s what we know…
TWO creepy chemicals take center stage in this nightmare… N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA).
Both are by-products of the manufacturing process. And both could cause cancer in people.
Now you’d think the only tolerable level of carcinogens in a medication would be zero.
But the FDA does things a bit differently, so they set “acceptable levels” for them.
And it turns out the NDMA and NDEA levels in a several blood pressure pills flew RIGHT by those marks last year.
But the bad news didn’t end there. Contaminated blood pressure meds continued to flood the market leading to even MORE recalls.
Were YOUR blood pressure pills recalled?
If you or someone you care about is on blood pressure pills, you can’t afford to ignore these recalls. Your LIFE could be at risk.
Grab your bottle and check to see if you’re taking one of them…
Valsartan: The FDA has recalled so many versions of Valsartan they created a website for this issue. It’s currently eleven pages long. But these recalls are happening so fast don’t assume you’re in the clear if your version of the drug isn’t on the list. Instead, check with your pharmacist or doctor for the latest information.
Losartan: Eighteen kinds of losartan medications have already been recalled. If you’re taking any version of this drug, you can check the FDA website to see if it’s included on the list. But if you don’t spot yours, it’s still a good idea to double check with your doc or pharmacist.
Irbesartan: Recalls on Irbesartan began last year. There are already over half a dozen versions of the drug on the list. But that number may grow. So once again, no matter what version you take be sure to check with your pharmacist to see if it’s still safe.
If your blood pressure pills ARE on the list here’s what to do….
- Do NOT stop taking your meds… quitting cold turkey can be dangerous
- Contact your doctor and ask about weaning off the pills
- Start a conversation about drug-free options to manage your hypertension such as diet, exercise and supplemental support like magnesium, L-arginine, and spirulina
Don’t let the mainstream’s FUBAR approach to treating blood pressure put YOU at risk for cancer. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist TODAY to find out of your blood pressure pills are contaminated with carcinogens.
