Why Statins Are Not Safe or Effective

As of 2015, approximately 25% of adults over the age of 45 are on statin drugs.
What we will look at today is what do the studies say vs. what the drug companies that sell them say.  Statins do lower cholesterol for sure. But does that mean you are now better off? If you read the links below I think you will agree that the evidence doesn’t support wellness! One of the first studies that pop up is how statins deplete your Coq10. Which comes right from the Merck manual. A doctor friend of mine said he was concerned as many of the doctors he worked with that prescribed statins never told their patients to take Coq10 along with the statin.

Statins work by blocking a liver enzyme known for making cholesterol. Yes, we do make our own cholesterol!  It is very necessary for our brain and producing our hormones, and even estrogen and testosterone.

So if the doctor wants to put you on a statin, don’t be afraid to speak up and say you have never seen a study showing people living longer due to just having lower cholesterol numbers.
Plus there are proven studies on African mango for lowering LDL and triglycerides while raising and your HDL cholesterol.  Without so many side effects.

Don’t forget you can always choose a doctor that is willing to listen to his or her patient. If he or she prescribes you a statin anyway and you decide to take it and your cholesterol gets lower you may think you are getting healthier. Not so fast! There is much more to the equation than LDL numbers. Like density, body inflammation and so on.     Things your doctor should consider are hs-C-reactive protein, particle sizes of the LDL cholesterol.  The bottom line is when you take in all of the possible side effects, will you live longer or better? The following links below by experts seem to say otherwise.

Here are just some of the common side effects for people on higher amounts and longer terms of statin drugs.
#1 Neuropathy.
