(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 theJournal of the American Medical Associationshows that statin drugs actuallycausediabetes.
The findings also confirm the general ineptitude of American disease and medical groups that continually push dangerousdrugson 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 lowercholesterol levels, rather than focus on their link to causingdiabetes.
But what the study actually proves is that taking statins leads to moredisease, especially in light of various recentstudiesthat show statins do not even work effectively to lowercholesterol, let alone treat anything else (http://www.naturalnews.com/statins.html).
Despite an slight decrease in cardiovascular events amongpatientstaking 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,statinshave never been provensafeor effective for their stated purpose.
Numerous studies, including one published last year in theBritish Medical Journal, show that statins harm more people than they actually help — and in truth, there is scant evidence that statins doanythingbeneficial at all for patients.
In other words, patients with high cholesterol levels do not need to takestatin drugsfor the rest of their lives to manage their “condition” — this is not the only option.
Eliminating processed, chemical-ladenfoodsfrom 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).
