Cholesterol chemical structure Study: Higher Cholesterol Levels Associated with Longer Life   Statin Drugs Useless


by Dr. Brownstein

If you have high cholesterol levels you should take a statin right? That is the mantra promoted by conventional medicine. In fact, statins have become the most profitable class of medications sold by The Big Pharma Cartel.

I have seen countless patients who have been told by their doctor that if they don’t take a statin drug they are putting themselves in line for heart attack.

However, that is not what the research has found. Did you know that:

1. There is no indication for taking a statin drug if you have not had a cardiac event.
2. If you are a man and have had a cardiac event, the best the statins drugs can promise you is approximately a 1-5% reduction in preventing a non-fatal heart attack.
3. Even though they have been around for over 15 years, statin drugs have never been shown to prolong lives.
4. In women there are no solid studies that demonstrate that it is beneficial to take a statin drug for any purpose.

The Cochrane Collaboration, an independent group that is not associated with Big Pharma money stated, “Statins do not have a proven net health benefit in primary prevention populations and thus when used in that setting do not represent good use of scarce health care resources.” (1)

A recent (2013) study found that high cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol levels in subjects over 50 years was associated with lowered all-cause mortality. (2) Compared to those with cholesterol <190mg/dL, those aged 60-70 years with a cholesterol level from 190-230mg/dL had a 32% lowered mortality rate. Those with a cholesterol level from 230-308mg/dL had a 33% reduced mortality rate. For male subjects with a cholesterol over 308mg/dL, there was an insignificant 2% increase risk for all-cause mortality. Women fared better. Compared to those with a cholesterol of less than 190mg/dL, women with cholesterol levels from 190-308mg/dL had a 41-43% reduction in all-cause mortality. Similarly to men, cholesterol levels over 308mg/dL had an insignificant (2%) rise in all-cause mortality.

Folks, this study is nothing new. Low cholesterol levels are associated with an increased risk of cancer, neurological disorders and muscle disorders. There are many studies showing increased longevity in older people (over 59 years old) who have higher cholesterol levels. Keep in mind that cholesterol is needed by every cell in the body to optimally function.

I stated in my book, Drugs that Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do, “You can’t poison a crucial enzyme and expect a good long-term result.” Statins poison a crucial enzyme in the body—HMG CoA Reductase. The result of poisoning this enzyme is disastrous—the chemical lowering of cholesterol is associated with disorders of the neurological and muscular systems.

The promotion of statins defies logic. The widespread use of this class of medications doesn’t make either biochemical or common sense. Mark my words; In the future, the widespread use of statins will be shown to be a drastic mistake in medicine.

Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health

Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health

Pin It

Your environment and lifestyle, particularly your diet, has a direct influence on your genetic expression. For example, research using identical twins have shown that diet trumps genes in terms of the level of health you achieve.

The science of epigenetics also challenges the conventional view of genetics, proving that the environment determines which traits a gene will express, and that your fate is in no way written in stone even if you have genetic predispositions.

It has become increasingly clear that there’s collusion going on between our government, industry, and scientists, to hide the fact that everything from human health and intellectual capacity to various addictions are indeed caused by the environment in which we find ourselves, NOT genetics and the failed science supporting it with billions of research dollars.

Knowing we are not salves to our genetic heritage offer tremendous amounts of hope for every single one of us, as it removes us from the position of victims of our heredity, and makes us masters of our own health and well-being.

Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014

Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014

Pin It

Criminal activities of pharmaceutical companies are frequently reported on in the mainstream media. The largest criminal settlements in U.S. history are cases against pharmaceutical companies, such as Johnson & Johnson’s $2.2 billion criminal settlement late last year for illegally marketing drugs to the elderly, children and the mentally disabled.

When it comes to criminal activities involved with marketing vaccines, however, there is a near total blackout in the mainstream media. So here at Health Impact News we will highlight a sampling of some of the biggest stories of fraud and criminal activities involved with marketing vaccines so far here in 2014.

Very few of these stories have been mentioned in the mainstream media, because the vaccine market is a multi-billion dollar market, and the vaccine industry does not like losing any market share. They are using their incestuous relationship to the U.S. government to take away personal rights and liberties in medical choices. They would like mandatory vaccine policies in place at the local, state, and national levels, because their products cannot survive in a free market. They need government collusion and coercion for this market to survive. And so far, with the help of the mainstream media generally not reporting on the corruption and criminal activity, they have a willing and compliant public.

The Flu Vaccine War: Healthcare Workers Fight Back

The Flu Vaccine War: Healthcare Workers Fight Back

Pin It

We have already established in previous articles that the flu vaccine is by far the most dangerous vaccine in the United States, injuring and killing many people every year based on settled court cases by the Department of Justice in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

And yet, hospitals across the country are mandating that healthcare workers receive the flu vaccine as a requirement to keep their employment. The main reason for this policy of forcing employees to receive the flu vaccine is not based on solid science that it protects patients (the science actually points towards no patient benefits), but based on funding requirements for medical reimbursements through Medicare and Medicaid, and through the Affordable Health Care Act, that require healthcare facilities to have a high compliance rate of employees receiving the flu vaccine.

Nurses, doctors, and other healthcare workers across the country are fighting back, however.

This week, he Massachusetts Nurses Association sued Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to block a policy to require nurses to get flu shots as a condition of employment.

And this is not the first lawsuit in the country. Others have also taken action to protect their right to refuse medical treatments that are mandated as a condition to retain employment.

Why would State Farm make such a controversial decision to pull one of their ads featuring someone who helped families with vaccine-injured children in private, knowing that they would lose customers over it? Could it be they were pressured to do so because they just jumped into the lucrative health insurance exchange business?

Learning When to Refuse Medical Treatment

Doctors today are over-prescribing diagnostic tests and drugs, and patients need to learn how to say “no” to their doctors. This message, surprisingly, is coming from the mainstream media. While this has been a clear message for many years now in the alternative media, that message is now going “mainstream.”
