In a widely publicized announcement by the American Diabetes Association
that can only be called extremely dangerous health politics, the group
has advised all diabetic patients to start taking statins regardless of
whether they have high cholesterol. The justification? Because statin
drugs, the Association insists, "...may have some other qualities that
have not been tested."
You read it right: the American Diabetes
Association wants everyone with diabetes to take an expensive
prescription drug -- for life, presumably -- on the off chance that it
might someday turn out to be helpful in some unknown way that has
never been tested or scientifically supported. Folks, this is
medical madness, and if the FDA weren't working so hard to
protect the pharmaceutical industry, they would step in and issue a
statement challenging this precarious advice by the ADA.
rice, a natural food supplement, lowers cholesterol far more effectively
than statins. Can you imagine the outcry from the FDA if the American
Diabetes Association suddenly announced that all diabetics should be
taking red yeast rice based on the hope that it might help them in some
unknown way? The FDA would immediately take to the airwaves, screaming,
"It's not proven! It's dangerous advice!" But when it's a drug that's
being recommended to patients, against all scientific merit, the FDA
stands back and says nothing. This is nothing more than blatant medical
dogma in action.
So what's the real reason the American Diabetes
Association is pushing these statin drugs so hard without a shred of
scientific evidence that they are helpful to diabetics? Let's take a
closer look: it turns out that the ADA receives millions of dollars each
year in money from drug companies! Some of the association's top
sponsors, giving at least $500,000, are some of the wealthiest
pharmaceutical companies on the planet: Novartis, Merck, Parke-Davis,
Pfizer, SmithKline Beecham, Takeda, Bayer, Aventis and Eli Lilly. And
that money, it turns out, buys a lot of influence. The ADA has become a
propaganda machine for the pharmaceutical industry, just like the FDA.
Now they're hawking drugs to diabetics with absolutely no justification.
They're not even pretending that statins are helpful to
diabetics: they're saying that maybe, someday, they might be discovered
to be helpful. In the mean time, they're saying, all diabetics should be
chemical guinea pigs.
On top of all this, it turns out that statins
are highly dangerous drugs: they interfere with normal liver function
and block the production of sex hormones, among dozens of other
documented side effects. When will our country learn that prescription
drugs are not the answer?
