Welcome To The Cholesterol Truth
HAVE YOU BEEN SUCKERED BY
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 cholesterol-lowering drugs – known as statins – are prescribed to every Tom, Dick and Harry…whether they need them or not.
Even if you are in good health, the chances are you’ll end up with a statin prescription just because you are over 40!
And it’s almost a cast-iron certainty that – if it’s not you – then someone you know, someone you care about, someone in your immediate family is already taking these drugs… on the assumption that they are lowering their cholesterol and preventing heart disease and stroke.
Yet, the truth is that there is absolutely no scientific evidence that statins reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.
What’s more, 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 statins. 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!
Are We All Being Conned?
Here at The Cholesterol Truth we are committed to exposing the truth about statins and debunking the entire cholesterol myth.
Our team of researchers are constantly sifting through mountains of scientific research in order to report to you the real truth you’re not being told by your doctor or by the medical authorities.
For instance, most worryingly (and something many people taking statins are not aware of) is that these drugs completely deplete an essential heart nutrient produced naturally in your body which is necessary for every one of your cells 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!
But did your doctor, or the drugs companies or the medical authorities ever tell you about this?
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 here’s a case in point…
In 2003, farmer Paul Rhoades, then aged 57, 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 were 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’ side-effects:
- dementia and memory loss
- sleep disturbance
- sexual dysfunction
- lung disease…
- And there have been many more linked back to statins.
