(NaturalNews) A new study out of Imperial College London suggests that fast food chains start giving out free statin drugs to customers in order to help balance out the negative effects of the junk food on their bodies. The scientists who worked on the study actually say that taking a statin drug with a fast food meal undoes most of the damage otherwise caused by eating it.

"Statins don't cut out all of the unhealthy effects of burgers and fries. It's better to avoid fatty food altogether. But we've worked out that in terms of your likelihood of having a heart attack, taking a statin can reduce your risk to more or less the same degree as a fast food meal increases it," explained Dr. Darrel Francis from the National Heart and Lung Institute at the college, author of the study.

The team is suggesting that statin drugs be handed out for free -- without a prescription -- to fast food customers with their meals. Dr. Francis even referred to statins in an interview as "supplements" rather than drugs, comparing them to the condiments one would put on a burger and fries.

But the belief that statin drugs are no different than food or supplements and are safe to hand out to people like candy is preposterous. Not only do statin drugs deplete the body of necessary enzymes like coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and prevent the body from producing it, but they damage cells and muscle tissue in the body.

"We know that statins cause muscle damage, but even in people without any symptoms or abnormal blood tests, muscle biopsy shows cell injury," explains Mark Hyman, MD, in his book The UltraMind Solution: Fix Your Broken Brain by Healing Your Body First.
