The Cholesterol Truth

Excerpts:

Many drugs have been developed which modify cholesterol levels in one way or another. Because there is a fervent belief within the research community that cholesterol causes heart disease, there is also slavish adherence to the belief that modifying cholesterol will translate into ‘clinical benefit’. But oh how often we have been left disappointed. There are many instances of where drugs which ‘improved’ cholesterol levels did nothing to prevent chronic disease, and even some examples where things went badly wrong.

I’m left unmoved, though, on the basis that the impact a drug has on cholesterol is irrelevant – it’s only the impact it has on health that is really important. The cholesterol theory leaves behind a litany of drugs that promised a lot, and delivered little and even harmed people. Even the one class of drugs that does appear to confer some benefits (statins) fails to benefit the vast majority of people who take it and does not save lives in people who have not previously had a heart attack or stroke. There’s an elephant in the room, but it would appear the pharmaceutical industry is blind to it. So intent it is, it seems, on developing the next ‘blockbuster’, and its obsession with projected revenues and share price means billions of dollars and some lives have been wasted.

Study: Insulin May Actually Accelerate Death in Type 2 Diabetes

Study: Insulin May Actually Accelerate Death in Type 2 Diabetes

In the United States, nearly 80 million people, or one in four has some form of diabetes or pre-diabetes. What’s worse, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes among children and teens has also skyrocketed. The most recent data, reveals that, between 2001 and 2009, incidence of type 1 diabetes among children under the age of 19 rose by 21 percent. Incidence of type 2 diabetes among children aged 10-19 rose by 30 percent during that same timeframe!

Statistics such as these point to two very important facts. First, it tells us that diabetes cannot be primarily caused by genetics, and secondly, it literally screams that something we’re doing, consistently and en masse, is horribly wrong, and we need to address it. A study published in the June 30, 2014 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine concluded that insulin therapy in type 2 diabetic patients may indeed do more harm than good.

Herd Immunity in Vaccinated Populations has been Repeatedly Shown to be a Myth

Herd Immunity in Vaccinated Populations has been Repeatedly Shown to be a Myth

Mass vaccination advocates rely on ‘herd immunity’ to make their case. But it doesn’t exist. Herd immunity sounds fine in theory. But as Stanford’s Dr. Obukhanych concluded, “As with any garbage in-garbage out type of theory, the expectations of the herd-immunity theory are bound to fail in the real world.”
