statins do more harm than good

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Data from a study published in January 2021 were converted into a graphic and published on Twitter in December 2021, revealing that in 28,025 participants there were more cardiac events in people taking statins than in those with the same risk factors who didn’t take statins
  • The writers believe the negative effects found may be overcome by changing the scoring method and investigating the protective role of calcified plaque, but current research limited validation of the change
  • The research supports past data that show despite the popularity of statins, heart disease remains the No. 1 cause of death and killed far more last year in the U.K. than COVID
  • Statins are known to increase your risk of dementia and diabetes; one study found despite these added risks, statins could potentially extend your life by only 3.2 to 4.1 days than if you didn’t take the drug, when you made no other lifestyle changes
  • Instead of focusing on the raw cholesterol numbers, pay attention to your cholesterol ratios, ferritin level and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) tests for a better evaluation of your cardiac risk

About michael burgwin

A child of the peace and antiWar movements, a Truther with self-diagnosed Opposition Defiance Disorder, formerly politically liberal tho now politically marooned, and Post-Doomer, on any issue, I trend to the conspiracy side, sort through the absurd, fantastical and insane, until I find firm ground usually located just the other side of the censorship firewall of propaganda and orthodoxy, dogma, and other either / or thinking.
