THE GREAT CHOLESTEROL CON!
The REAL truth you’re not being told about cholesterol …
and why taking cholesterol-lowering statins does your health much more harm than good…
Big Pharma has made every effort to ensure that statin drugs are prescribed to everyone. Are you next?
Even if you are in good health, chances are you’ll end up with a statin prescription just because you are over 40!
There’s a very good chance that – if not you – then someone you know, someone you care about, someone in your immediately family is already taking these drugs… on the premise that they are lowering their cholesterol and preventing heart disease and stroke.
Yet, the TRUTH about the dangerous side effects of statins are often played down . . . or even downright ignored!
Imagine the following:
- Muscle pain and muscle weakness (myopathy)
- Muscle damage
- Memory loss and cognitive failure
- Kidney failure
- Moderate or severe liver dysfunction
- Acute renal failure and cataracts
- Behavioural changes and depression
- Suicidal thoughts
… This is the harsh reality awaiting millions of unsuspecting people, trusting their doctors, who tell them that lowering their cholesterol with statins is the best way to prevent heart disease…
Heck, some doctors are so sucked in by the ‘statin euphoria’ that they recommend it should be added to our drinking water!
But not all doctors have their judgement clouded by Big Pharma’s ‘wonder drug’…
Evidence is piling up regarding the damaging effects of ststins. Even mainstream medical journals are becoming concerned about the over-prescription of statin drugs and their dangerous side effects… recent studies even suggest that the side-effects of statins could outweigh the benefits!
Take 2 minutes to watch the video above and see what Dr. John Briffa – a leading doctor in natural medicine and a staunch opponent of the over-prescribing of statins – has to say on a recent Channel 4 news debate…
We’re all being conned!
Here at The Cholesterol Truth we are so passionate about exposing the truth about statins and debunking the entire cholesterol myth, that we asked Dr. Briffa to join us as a contributing editor… even he will tell you that we’ve all been conned and that cholesterol is not the villain the mainstream is making it out to be…
Most worryingly (and something many people taking statins are not aware of) is that this drug completely depletes an essential heart nutrient necessary for every cell in your body to function properly. It’s called Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)… and yet statins are designed to block the production of this natural heart-critical nutrient!
And here’s the real kicker… Too low levels of CoQ10 can increase your risk of heart disease… the very condition statins are supposedly designed to prevent!
Big Pharma has had a field day selling these dangerous drugs over the past two decades… Currently it is estimated that 7 million people are taking statins in the UK alone. That equates to one in three of people over 40… That’s a lot of money made at the expense of many people’s health… and in some cases it’s costing lives.
A case in point is Paul Rhoades…
In 2003, Paul, then aged 57, a humble smallholder, was counting his sheep – as he did every day – when suddenly he stopped, unable to focus or remember what he was doing.
‘I couldn’t remember which sheep I’d counted and which I hadn’t,‘ he recalls. ‘Counting was beyond me. I had a flicker of panic that it might be a sign of Alzheimer’s – but I tried to put it to the back of my mind.’
But the problem did not disappear, and Paul became increasingly forgetful. He was constantly losing his thread in conversations and forgetting people’s names. He’d walk into the kitchen to feed his dogs and then struggle to remember what he’d gone in there for. It was like a fog had descended on his brain.
Shortly after the memory-loss and brain fog set in, Paul began suffering muscle pain and cramps in his legs, and developed problems with balance and co-ordination.
‘I had a weird feeling that my legs were out of sync with my brain,’ says Paul. ‘I also felt very tired.’
A few months earlier, Paul had been prescribed 40mg simvastatin (the most commonly prescribed statin in the UK) daily to reduce his risk of heart attack or stroke due to his raised cholesterol levels.
Shortly after follwoing his doctor’s advice, Paul’s troubling symptoms started – symptoms which have since worsened, leaving Paul, now 64, largely dependent on a wheelchair.
He is convinced that statins are to blame.
Paul’s story is just one of millions showing the true colours of so-called ‘life-saving statins’… Luckily, here at The Cholesterol Truth, we know they are anything but… new evidence suggests that many more people than previously thought suffer adverse reactions to these drugs…
Until recently, the mainstream acknowledged side effects including muscle pain and damage, gastro-intestinal problems, headaches, joint pains and peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage and loss of feeling in the hands and feet).
But the tide is turning and the truth about these dangerous drugs is being exposed… Recently, the UK drug safety watchdog, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), issued warnings about five ‘new’ possible side-effects: memory loss, depression, sleep disturbance, sexual dysfunction and a rare lung disease… since then there have been many more linked back to statins.
