Memory lapses. Low Energy. Brain fog. Muscle pain. High blood sugar. A growing body of research suggests these and other side effects are linked to cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.
With drug industry profits from statins collapsing, a recent scientific review published in the Pharmaceutical Journal – a publication of Britain’s Royal Pharmaceutical Society – has added fuel to the fire by confirming the cholesterol theory of heart disease is now “dead”. Pointing out that the lives of heart attack survivors participating in pharma-sponsored statin trials have been shown to be extended by an average of just 4 days, the authors say there is an “ethical and moral imperative” for the potential harms of these drugs to be discussed.
The fact is, of course, that the solution to the cardiovascular disease epidemic already exists. In April 2015, scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California published a groundbreaking study in the American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease proving that heart disease is an early form of the vitamin C deficiency disease scurvy. Building on a discovery made by Dr. Matthias Rath in the early 1990s, it paves the way for the abolition of heart disease as a cause of human mortality.
