(NaturalNews) Seven years after the American Diabetes Association urged all diabetics, regardless of whether or not they had high cholesterol, to take statin drugs because they "may have some other qualities that have not been tested," (http://www.naturalnews.com/001110.html
), a new analysis published in the Journal of the American Medical Association
shows that statin drugs actually cause
The findings also confirm the general ineptitude of American disease and medical groups that continually push dangerous drugs on the public that have never been adequately verified for safety or effectiveness.
The study, which includes data from five randomized clinical trials, appears poised to highlight the alleged benefits of statins to lower cholesterol levels, rather than focus on their link to causing diabetes.
But what the study actually proves is that taking statins leads to more disease, especially in light of various recent studies that show statins do not even work effectively to lower cholesterol, let alone treat anything else (http://www.naturalnews.com/statins.html
Despite an slight decrease in cardiovascular events among patients taking statins like Lipitor, Pravachol, and Crestor, the data does not indicate whether other factors like dietary and lifestyle changes may have played a role in this outcome. And yet at the same time, the data shows an 8.4 percent rise in diabetes among the statin groups.
Aside from their many serious side effects, which include loss of muscle mass, liver disease, kidney failure, depleted Coenzyme Q10 levels, and heart attacks, statins have never been proven safe or effective for their stated purpose.
, including one published last year in the British Medical Journal
, show that statins harm more people than they actually help -- and in truth, there is scant evidence that statins do anything
beneficial at all for patients.
In other words, patients with high cholesterol
levels do not need to take statin drugs for the rest of their lives to manage their "condition" -- this is not the only option.
Eliminating processed, chemical-laden foods from your diet, consuming more superfoods like spirulina
and chlorella, and getting plenty of daily exercise is a great place to start when trying to lower cholesterol naturally (http://www.naturalnews.com/002692.html
