Break out the salt and pepper. The mainstream is eating a HUGE helping of crow when it comes to cholesterol and statins.
After DECADES of touting statins as a cholesterol-lowering miracle drug – after insisting that the drugs are the BEST WAY to bring down LDL – new research exposes the startling truth:
The drugs DON’T WORK at least HALF of the time!
I’d say they owe EVERYONE a huge apology.
But don’t expect one anytime soon. Because amazingly… despite admitting to failure on a massive scale… they’re not giving up on statins yet.
They’re doubling down and urging MORE people to take HIGHER doses!
It’s time to stop the madness, end this dangerous experiment, and finally take action to save lives when it comes to cholesterol control.
And you can do all that WITHOUT touching a statin or even any drug at all.
Megadoses of statins raise risks
The mainstream considers statins “effective” when they cut LDL by at least 40 percent.
Isn’t that a hoot?
You’d think “effective” would mean some combination of…
- CUTTING risk
- SAVING lives
- PREVENTING heart attack and stroke
Their measure of success for statins is that 40 percent LDL drop. And I’ve got news for you, my friend. By itself, that number is utterly meaningless.
In the new study, the folks who saw that “benefit” had a 14 percent lower risk of heart disease. Trouble is, they weren’t the majority.
More than HALF of the patients on statins didn’t see that drop and didn’t get the benefit.
Naturally, they’re not blaming the flawed approach or failed drugs.
They’re blaming doctors – and practically TAUNTING them.
They claim the half that didn’t get the benefit just needed HIGHER doses of their statins. And they are essentially calling docs cowards, saying they’re “afraid” to prescribe those massive dosages.
But there’s a much simpler explanation for that, and it has nothing to do with cowardice.
Maybe… just maybe… these doctors actually LIKE their patients!
Protect yourself from cholesterol damage without drugs
See, statins not only come with side effects like every other drug.
They also pack a hidden “extra” risk.
Statins can CAUSE diabetes. And the higher the dose, the bigger the risk. In fact, at the higher doses these researchers are pushing, the risk of diabetes jumps by a fifth!
You don’t need a calculator to know that a 20 percent increase in the risk of diabetes is far higher than a 14 percent lower risk of heart disease.
That makes it unethical and reprehensible to keep pushing statins on patients without discussing alternatives… ESPECIALLY at higher doses.
Besides, you DON’T need the drugs at any dose to start cutting those risks.
The REAL reason high LDL leads to heart risk isn’t the LDL itself. It’s when it oxidizes.
Fight the oxidation, and you’ll fight that risk. And one way to do exactly that is with a healthy fatty acid with a funny name: Krill oil.
This stuff is loaded with a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin that can help block oxidation, so your LDL particles aren’t damaged. And that makes it one of the SAFEST weapons for cholesterol control yet, no dangerous statins necessary. Talk with your doctor about making the switch.
