A 'new' study of statin medications has just been published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. I say new, but actually its a new manipulation of old data.
The researchers looked at eight previously conducted clinical trials done on statins. The population studied was elderly people without existing cardiovascular disease. After doing their calculations, it was concluded that statins did slightly reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, but the use of statins did not reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. There was also no reduction in the risk of death from all causes.
The bottom line is that it has once again been established that statins do not extend life expectancy for people without cardiovascular disease.
This is one of the key points that STATIN NATION exposes. The video excerpt below provides a summary of this issue:
The producer of Statin Nation was recently interviewed by Ronald Hoffman,
MD for his "Intelligent Medicine" podcast. They discussed:
Editor's Note: Decades of studies of this issue conclusively indicate that anyone taking a Statin Drug is wasting his or her money and endangering his or her health. Statins do nothing for people who have no cardiovascular disease and next-to-nothing for those who do. Statins lower serum cholesterol — WHICH IS NOT A BENEFIT. The only demonstrated benefit of Statin treatment accrues to doctors and the pharmaceutical industry. You can start your education here:
My own case is one of millions:
Statins took 20 years out of my life and nearly killed me. You don't have to repeat my mistake. If you are taking a Statin: STOP.
