Big Pharma Suffers Another Major Blow!
It’s been a tough few weeks for Big Pharma, as three major studies have now completely disproved the effectiveness of its most profitable drugs.
Last week, a huge study published in The Lancet admitted that the risks of antidepressants in children and teens far outweigh the benefits, as the drugs routinely increase suicidal behavior. Out of 14 antidepressants, only one was shown to improve depression better than the placebo.
Scientists report: Cholesterol Drugs Completely Worthless.
Now, scientists are reporting that cholesterol drugs, which 15 million Americans are prescribed, are also completely worthless. A group of international researchers published a study in the BMJ Open journal that found no link between what’s known as “bad” cholesterol and death as a result of heart disease in individuals over 60 years of age.
In fact, the results found that 92 percent of people with high cholesterol actually lived longer. The best way to achieve and maintain good heart health is not through medications but through healthy lifestyle habits.
“Lowering cholesterol with medications for primary cardiovascular prevention in those aged over 60 is a total waste of time and resources, whereas altering your lifestyle is the single most important way to achieve a good quality of life,” said vascular and endovascular surgery expert Professor Sherif Sultan from the University of Ireland.
‘Lowering cholesterol with medications is a total waste of time’
Study co-author Dr. Malcolm Kendrick said their findings show “that older people with high LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, the so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol, lived longer and had less heart disease.”
The revelations are sure to have huge implications for the pharmaceutical industry, as the cholesterol drug Lipitor is the most profitable meditation of all time – raking in more than $140 billion in sales, according to Health Impact News.
The guidelines for preventing heart disease and the buildup of plaque in the arteries need to be re-evaluated, said the study authors, adding that “the benefits from statin treatment have been exaggerated.”
But the truth is that the benefits of statins haven’t just been exaggerated, but 100 percent fabricated, as well as the “research” supporting other drugs such as antidepressants and vaccines.
Natural News reported in 2013 that the push to get even more U.S. adults on statins was facilitated by doctors tied to the industry. Physicians with the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology issued new guidelines three years ago calling for one-third of all adults to consider taking statins – a push proven to be extremely lucrative for Big Pharma.
When questioned about the conflict of interest, the response was: “Ties between heart doctors and Big Pharma are so extensive that it is almost impossible to find a large group of doctors who have no industry ties.”

BIG PHARMA LIES TO PROTECT THEIR #3 MONEY-MAKER DRUG!
The issue of statin drugs being completely ineffective at preventing death from cardiovascular disease has repeatedly made major new networks from CNN to ABC News (U.S. and Australia, as well as, being published in the Wallstreet Journal, Time Magazine and the New York Times. Even after the FDA released its ‘BLACK BOX WARNING’ on the dangers of taking statin medications, these drugs are still on the market. Furthermore, so many doctors, including cardiologists, remain completely oblivious to all of the research that has been released exposing the dangers of taking statin medication.
How can this be happening, you ask? Unfortunately ‘Big Pharma’ has an incredible stronghold on our law makers. What this means is that they wield major control.
It is vital to your health for you to become familiar with the dangers associated with taking statin medication.
Numerous studies have been published showing that ALL statin medication causes major damage to peripheral nerves, neurons in the brain, statins have been linked with causing diabetes, numerous cancers, cognitive impairment (dementia and Alzheimer’s), impaired hormone production, depleted Coenzyme Q10 and impaired vitamin D function (vit. D is important for the nervous system, immune system, and hormone production), muscle weakness and atrophy (muscle wasting).
We have numerous patients that have walked into our office that have developed Peripheral Neuropathy as a result of using Statin Medication.
Do not be bullied into taking a statin medication by your well-intentioned doctor Next time your doctor tells you, “You’re absolutely foolish for not taking a statin!” or “Fine, it’s your funeral” (actual statements cardiologists have made to 2 of my patients), simply tell that doctor – in a very respectful manor-
“Doc, haven’t you read the 30 year study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which showed irrefutable evidence that elevated cholesterol levels in patients 50 and older do not increase the risk of heart attack. The study showed that elevated homocysteine levels and insulin levels are the best predictive factor for a heart attack.”
