Statin Cholesterol Pills Cholesterol Lowering Statin Drugs – How The Facts Don’t Back The Hype

The Cholesterol Truth

Excerpts:

When drug company PR extols the virtues of statin drugs, statistics will invariably be presented which make clear their supposed power to reduce the risk of, say, heart disease or stroke. Typically, this will be in the form of what is known as ‘relative risk’ reduction. For example, it is often said that statins reduce the risk of heart attack by about a third. Put this way, statins do sound like they have considerable power to ward off disease and perhaps even death. Not only are many of members of the public convinced by these sorts of statistics, but most doctors are too. Doctors will often bandy around these statistics as justification for statin prescriptions that they write for healthy individuals who have turned up a ‘raised’ cholesterol on testing.

The risk:benefit ratio is weighted a little more heavily in favour of benefit when we look at people with a previous history of heart attack or stroke, but even here, many individuals need to be treated for one to gain benefit. Plus, it should be borne in mind that the great majority of people on statins are ‘healthy’ and have no previous history of cardiovascular disease. In short, this review tells us that, for the most part, statin treatment is a futile endeavour. While many doctors have been suckered in by drug company hype and encouragement from their governing bodies, at least some have had the presence of mind to take a long, hard, objective look at the data, and found statins to be wanting.

State Farm Dumped Rob Schneider for Vaccine Views: Now I’m Dumping State Farm

State Farm Dumped Rob Schneider for Vaccine Views: Now I’m Dumping State Farm

Pin It

According to PR Week, State Farm has decided to drop an ad starring comedian Rob Schneider from its rotation due to his “anti-vaccine views” after a social media outcry.

Well, bravo for the power of social media. Now here is my response.

I am immediately dropping State Farm.

I have used State Farm for my car and home insurance for about 15 years. I just sent an email to my agent, letting her know how disappointed I was to learn that State Farm had caved into the pharmaceutical and vaccine industry, an industry rife with fraud and corruption, simply because one of their actors in their advertisements sees fit to warn parents on the dangers of vaccines.

Statin Scam: People with Higher Cholesterol Live Longer than People with Low Cholesterol

Statin Scam: People with Higher Cholesterol Live Longer than People with Low Cholesterol

Pin It

Here is a fact that has been known for quite a long time, but it is still news to many people: People with higher cholesterol levels live longer than people with lower cholesterol levels.

The reason why this fact is not well-known in the general public is because it would put a huge dent into a $100 BILLION drug market for statin drugs – drugs that lower your cholesterol. With approximately one out of every 4 Americans over the age of 50 currently prescribed a statin drug, a drug with very serious side effects, this is certainly one issue you should investigate yourself.

Liberian Scientist and Professor: Ebola Virus Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

Liberian Scientist and Professor: Ebola Virus Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

This editorial written by Dr. Cyril Broderick, a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry, was published by Liberia’s largest newspaper as headline news. He claims that Ebola is a genetically modified organism (GMO) introduced by western medicine and possibly a result of military research.

The western pro-pharma media has chided Dr. Broderick, saying that such an inflammatory piece of writing is “irresponsible” since so many Africans are already distrustful of western medicine. They see western medicine as the answer to Africa’s deadly diseases such as Ebola, while Dr. Borderick sees it as the cause. Dr. Broderick states “African people are not ignorant and gullible, as is being implicated.”

Whether right or wrong, we feel African leaders have a voice in this matter, and should not be censored.

New GAO Report on Obamacare: Security Leaks, Cover Ups, and Lies

New GAO Report on Obamacare: Security Leaks, Cover Ups, and Lies

The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released its report this week on Obamacare. The report shows massive security flaws, cover-ups, and lies. Is this the new norm for government overseeing health matters? The GAO is also expected to soon conclude a report on the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund which has accumulated $3.5 BILLION in 2014.

CDC Whistleblower Dr. Thompson: “I’ve Stopped Lying” – Willing to Testify on Vaccine Fraud

CDC Whistleblower Dr. Thompson: “I’ve Stopped Lying” – Willing to Testify on Vaccine Fraud

Pin It

The Autism Media Channel has released another video from CDC Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, confessing to the fact that he was asked by his boss to lie, and that he’s now “stopped lying.”

In the video, Thompson states that the CDC has “become paralyzed” over the vaccine-autism issue. He states that the whole branch of the vaccine division is “becoming more paralyzed, with less and less being done.”

This failure by the CDC to investigate why vaccines cause autism in some children has “put the research 10 years behind” according to Thompson. He states that “because the CDC has not been transparent, we missed 10 years of research.”

Thompson goes on to state that we need Congress to come in and look at all the data related to vaccines and autism that has been previously withheld by the CDC, and have an independent contractor look at it. Thompson makes it clear that he is ready to testify before Congress, if asked to do so.
