Supplements and Diet are Safer, More Effective than Statins
Yet another article with proof of how you can have healthy cholesterol but for some reason this information is not being backed by millions of dollars on marketing and I cannot understand why. okay a little sarcasm there. If you know of anyone who could benefit and would like to crawl out from under the thumb of big pharma and our oh so informative government who “approves” of these drugs for human consumption, then I suggest you read it below.
(OMNS Nov 14, 2013) Statins for everyone? If media are to be believed, and if the drug industry has its way, the answer is “you bet.” The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that kids as young as eight years of age might take statin drugs. Specifically: “As a group, statins have been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol in children and adolescents with marked LDL cholesterol elevation . . . when used from 8 weeks to 2 years for children aged 8 to 18 years.”
Ralph Campbell, MD (Montana, USA):
“You have likely heard about the conclusions from Cleveland Clinic gathering of heart specialists. Their objective was to zoom in on LDL levels as they relate (directly to heart disease. No mention of LDL/HDL ratio or of triglyceride levels. Again, niacin got very little recognition. Statins have some side effects that are serious, including rhabdomyolisis and kidney failure. The panel was made up of many with financial ties to industry, but “it is practically impossible to find a large group of outside experts who have no relationship to industry.” This was followed (yes, actually) by stating the new guidelines are based on solid evidence and that the public should trust them.”
Carolyn Dean, MD, ND (in The Magnesium Miracle):
“The mineral magnesium is the natural way that the body has evolved to control cholesterol when it reaches a certain level, whereas statin drugs are used to destroy the whole process. If sufficient magnesium is present in the body, cholesterol will be limited to its necessary functions – the production of hormones and the maintenance of membranes – and will not be produced in excess.”
Jorge Miranda, PharmD (Puerto Rico):
“Statin use reduces co-Q10 concentrations and leads to myopathy (muscle weakness), which can lead to heart failure. Those taking statins should be aware of this problem and consider taking co-Q10 supplements.”
So as you can plainly see big pharma is not telling the whole truth, come to think of it the so-called truth to positively affect our health may not be present at all. You decide.
