Cholesterol Con Exposed?

| January 2, 2010 | Comments (3)

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
  • Cancer

… 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.

  1. Daid Bailey says:

    I took Simvasatin for 3 years before it really hit me! I got cramps and additional weakness in my right leg,which is weakened by childhood polio. Instead of taking walks in the hills, I was starting to fear I might end up in a wheel chair.

    I though I was geting Post Polio Syndrome, but tried stopping the satin because I thought it might be inolved! It took about 9 months of exercising using pain killers to suppress the symptoms before I felt normal again! Since muscles are helped by exercise, I think this advice may help others,but you really do need the pain killers!

    I totally agree with theauthors – this is a vile drug.

  2. Chris says:

    As a former Critical care RN, of 12 years, I was never privy to the real information on Cholesterol nor the horrid truth of statin drugs, until I was disabled in 2002, as a result of my fear of Cholesterol, and subsequent Lipitor prescription. I now no more than I ever dreamed of knowing about cholesterol and the sham that is American Medicine…based on the almighty dollar. The holes on my brain, the Mitochondrial DNA mutations and the leftover residual effects of profound muscle pain, extreme fatigue, myoclonus, short term memory deficits (Severe enough to substantially limit any gainful employment.) I am HORRIFIED at what western medicine was and “evolved” into. When governments bow to chemical companies, we the people LOSE!

    Very interesting but the MAJOR killer in our foods, and that is MOST foods is PALM OIL!!! often referred to as VEGETABLE OIL, if you want to be really shocked, look up SAY NO TO PALM OIL on the web, now that really is a revelation on what is killing us!!!
