WARNING: Stop Trying To Lower Your Cholesterol!
By The People's Chemist
More than any other drug in history, Lipitor has raked in the most cash for Big Pharma—the kind of money that would solve world hunger and buy everyone on the planet a Breitling watch. The impetus driving this “gold rush via pill” is the idea that lowering cholesterol, LDL or otherwise, prevents heart disease. But the idea itself is nonsense. Most people who suffer from heart attacks have low cholesterol. Population studies show that those with high cholesterol live the longest.
As a nation, we saw this warning in 2004 when former President Bill Clinton lowered his cholesterol by 35%, only to suffer a heart attack soon after. This calamity has played out in homes across America ever since the first deceitful Lipitor ad hit the airwaves. Thanks, Pfizer. Ever since then, few patients have thought to make the deadly correlation between low cholesterol and worsened health. It’s easier to drink the Pharma kool-aid and follow doctor’s orders—even if it’s to an early grave.
The ill thought-out obsession with lowering cholesterol to prevent heart disease, has led to the overprescription of cholesterol-lowering drugs and the needless deaths of millions. A smarter approach to a healthy cardiovascular system is to lower inflammation through exercise, sunshine exposure, and quitting sugar. For an aggressive therapeutic option, the daily use of hawthorn, grape seed extract, garlic, and nattokinase is more valuable than any medication your doctor might prescribe.
But to believe this, you’d have to see past the mountain of greed, scare campaigns, censorship, statistical deception, and willful ignorance that aims to hook you on drugs for life. And most of you won’t do it. Start digging your grave.
Deceptive “Group Think” Leads Today’s Medical Science
When defending the “high cholesterol” myth, supporters simply ignore the evidence or cherry pick select medical journals that favor Lipitor use and lowering cholesterol. But this data is nothing more than a thinly disguised ad masquerading as research for the end goal of medicating the patient— sometimes to death.
Dr. John Ioannidis, one of the world’s foremost experts in pharmaceutical data manipulation, spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science. When asked, “Are drug companies manipulating published research to make their drugs look good?” he concluded that, “90% of the published medical information that doctors rely on is flawed.”
If you need more proof that Big Pharma is a lying bastard, heed the warning of Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor in chief of The New England Journal of Medicine. After two decades of pouring over journal articles, she confessed, “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.”
Speaking directly to the deceitful practices of selling cholesterol-lowering drugs, biochemist Maryanne Demasi, PhD, highlighted where the actual definition of “high cholesterol” was birthed—a committee of dorks assembled and paid for by Big Pharma! With a total of nine members, eight of them were hand selected and paid for by Big Pharma to become The US National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP).”
That committee single handedly, “revised the definition of ‘high cholesterol’ by dramatically lowering the threshold. Virtually overnight, it meant that millions more people would be eligible for statins. It was not based on any new scientific data but rather the increasingly popular notion that ‘less is best’ when it came to cholesterol.” This is like deciding “two” now means “three.”
It’s as if the devil himself hired a hand-chosen group of archangels to sell hell to everyone, while marketing it as heaven. This only means two things: 1) Cholesterol meds are a fraud, and 2) so is the test designed to check your cholesterol. As a result, a new phenomenon has erupted called “diagnosis creep.”
Diagnosis creep occurs when the industry slowly changes or creeps in a new definition of a disease in order to turn healthy people into sick patients. You see this daily with grown ass men who feel fine, and are easily convinced that they need Lipitor. It’s castration via propaganda.
The end result more meds, med-sick men and overcrowded morgues…plus more profit for Pharma, shareholders, and Pharma-funded governments worldwide. In “One nation under meds,” nobody is safe from the devil’s tricks.
Side Effects of Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs are Blamed on Age
Cholesterol-lowering drugs have a long history of destruction. Although they’re derived from nature, they’ve been well studied in the sterile halls of Big Pharma. Drug makers have tried to adapt them into products that can be patented, but these attempts have failed to keep patients safe from negative side effects.
Experimenting with various molds and their ability to manipulate cholesterol levels, Japanese chemists discovered Monascus purpureus growing on rice - known as red yeast rice. It became the drug “lovastatin,” which was later released as “Mevacor” by pharmaceutical giant, Merck.
That was decades ago. Every class of cholesterol-lowering drugs have proven to induce muscular aches and weakness, kidney disease, liver failure, hepatitis, heart failure, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer. In the largest survey ever conducted among users of cholesterol-lowering drugs, the National Lipid Association observed that roughly 30% of patients reported muscle pain and weakness, and 57% stopped using the drugs altogether.
Ditching the meds was a wise choice. To examine the association of cholesterol-lowering drugs and the risks of common cancers, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS)—a large and useful spontaneous database of adverse event reports—showed a significant rise in colorectal and pancreatic cancer among all users.
Reports of damage became so frequent that the FDA also noted that, “Patients taking simvastatin 80 mg daily have an increased risk of myopathy…The most serious form of myopathy, called rhabdomyolysis, can damage the kidneys and lead to kidney failure which can be fatal.”
The FDA has been adding warnings to drug labels for decades. In 2012, the so-called health regulators added warnings to all of the labels of widely used cholesterol-lowering drugs, including Lipitor, saying these drugs may raise levels of blood sugar and thus cause diabetes and potentially memory loss.
Doctors shove all of these incidents under the Big Pharma rug by insisting that rapid decline in health comes from age, not drugs. Sadly, thanks to the conditioning of the media and parroting doctors, patients are all too easily convinced that aging is the real culprit.
There’s No Such Thing as “High Cholesterol”
Do you know the difference between a parrot and a doctor? Parrots can fly. Otherwise, they’re identical—both repeat what they hear. You can test this for yourself. Just ask your doctor, “How can Lipitor help me?” Your doctor will go into a well-crafted sales pitch about high cholesterol being responsible for plaque build-up among the arteries.
That’s absurd, because cholesterol is found everywhere in the body. It’s a natural substance in the body! This means so-called “high” cholesterol levels would be blocking off all regions, not just those of your heart. Yet, cadaver studies show that 90% of the time, blockage only occurs within the coronary arteries, not among other parts like legs, arms, fingers, or anywhere else. So by definition, cholesterol—regardless of how much you have—can’t be the cause of blockage. Cholesterol is everywhere in the body, but it doesn’t cause plaque everywhere…which is why western medicine is led by deceit, not science.
Why Cholesterol is So Healthy For You
The purpose of cholesterol is to help your body function. Without it, we’d die. That’s why cholesterol will never be an enemy to your health. It’s actually quite vital for the digestion of nutrients, the production of hormones, and to ensure cellular integrity for the overall goal of proper organ function. Cholesterol is also a prerequisite for proper brain development and to preserve learning and memory. Most striking, it serves as nature’s Band-Aid to repair inflammation among the coronary arteries! Just like condom sizes, cholesterol levels differ greatly among individuals.
The Smart Way to Protect Your Heart
Heart disease is the hardening and narrowing of the arteries. It’s an inflammatory response initiated by damage to the inner lining of your arteries—the endothelium. This is the innermost layer of the arteries. Damage can happen anywhere in the body, but 90% of the time it happens in the spaghetti-sized arteries of the heart (coronary arteries), most likely due to the mechanical stress in this region undergoing inflammation caused by sugar, artificial flavors, alcohol, high insulin levels from obesity and Type 2 diabetes, as well as a sedentary lifestyle.
If you want to preserve your heart health, don’t bother trying to artificially lower your cholesterol levels. In fact, cholesterol is nature’s Band-Aid, which is why we see increased life spans among populations with the highest levels of cholesterol.
It’s far more important to prevent inflammation and damage to the endothelium of the arteries while also avoiding risky blood clots that lead to heart attack and stroke. The first steps are to get more exercise, increase sunshine exposure, and quit sugar.
For an aggressive therapeutic option that also helps control blood pressure, the daily use of Cardio FX (www.GetCardioFX.com), rich in hawthorn, grape seed extract, and garlic, combined with nattokinase has proven far more valuable than any medication your doctor might prescribe...and without side effects. These plant-based medicines, stuffed far under the Pharma rug, strengthen the heart, stop A-Fib, smash blood clots and can enable anyone to ditch the blood thinners, blood pressure meds and Lipitor! But the shackles of deceit and fear will keep most enslaved by drugs...
We’re no longer witnessing an advancement in medicine. For the first time in human history, our lifespan has gone backwards. Type 2 diabetes is expected to erase 11-20 years from our lives. Further, using prescription meds as prescribed is the top killer. When you add in addiction and medication error, following doctor’s orders is the number one killer in the USA. What we’re witnessing is an advancement in greed never before seen— under the guise of health.
There are only two kinds of patients today: those who take their meds and those who are being treated for the side effects of their meds. If you don’t ditch the meds now, you’ll be part of the former group and well on your way to an early grave as so many have done already. Stop trying to lower your fuckin’ cholesterol!
