STATINS RED ALERT: Widely prescribed drugs act as cellular poisons that accelerate aging... deactivate DNA repair... promote diabetes, muscle fatigue and memory loss


Statin drugs
(NaturalNews) The statin drugs prescribed to over 100 million people around the world have now been exposed as cellular poisons that accelerate aging and promote muscle fatigue, diabetes, memory loss and more.

Scientists at Tulane University in New Orleans found that statin drugs -- which generate tens of billions of dollars a year for pharmaceutical companies -- "deactivate" the stem cells responsible for cellular repair throughout the body. While statin drugs have been aggressively pushed by for-profit drug companies as "miracle" medicines, in truth they can lead to disastrous (even fatal) side effects in many patients.

As the UK Express writes, such side effects include "memory loss, muscle pain, diabetes, cataracts, liver dysfunction, diabetes, fatigue and memory loss."

"Statins make regular users become older faster," reports the Express, "leaving them open to long-term mental and physical decline..." The Express adds:

Scientists have found the heart disease drug badly affects our stem cells, the internal medical system which repairs damage to our bodies and protects us from muscle and joint pain as well as memory loss. ... Professor Reza Izadpanah, a stem cell biologist and lead author of the research published in the American Journal of Physiology, said: "Our study shows statins may speed up the aging process."

Statin drug side effects documented to include memory loss, muscle fatigue, cataracts and diabetes

The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology - Cell Physiology is entitled "The Impact of Statins on Biological Characteristics of Stem Cells Provides a Novel Explanation for Their Pleotropic Beneficial and Adverse Clinical Effects."

The study abstract states that statin drug "side effects include memory loss, myopathy, cataract formation, and increased risk of diabetes." It also warns that "Statins also impaired the expression of DNA repair genes including XRCC4, XRCC6, and Apex1."

Doctors and drug companies have conspired for years to downplay the side effects of statin drugs, promoting the medications as "miracle" drugs that everyone should be taking. Some doctors even suggested statins should be dripped into the water supply like fluoride.

When patients experienced the devastating side effects of statin drugs -- memory loss, diabetes, muscle fatigue, etc. -- doctors simply put them on yet more medications for those symptoms. Statin drugs, in effect, became "gateway drugs" that led to expanding medication prescriptions for yet more high-profit drugs.

Heart industry doctors bribed to lower the limits of "high" cholesterol to push more statin drugs

To expand the scam, the medical system conspired to redefine "high cholesterol" to lower numbers, instantly thrusting tens of millions of people into a state that demanded "treatment" with high-profit medications. These decision panels of the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology were stacked with panelists who were bribed by pharmaceutical companies to redefine high cholesterol in a way that generated the most profits. As Natural News wrote in 2013:

Doctors claim the new guidelines will limit how many people with low heart risks are put on statins simply because of a cholesterol number. However, under the new advice, one-third of U.S. adults would meet the threshold to consider taking a statin, more than twice the 15 percent of adults who are recommended statins under current guidelines.

The justification for the panel having half its members with ties to Big Pharma: 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.


For many years, Natural News has taught readers that statin drugs can cause nerve damage and other devastating health effects. But the medical establishment, as usual, ignored these side effects and kept pushing more statins for profit, pretending no one was being harmed.

Just like with the vaccine industry, the statin drug industry is far more concerned with pocketing huge profits than protecting lives. Now, thanks to researchers at Tulane University, the science of what causes statin drugs to be so dangerous to human health is better understood.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
