Statins Cause Artery Damage

Statins are killers and cause major artery damage, say researchers

Statin drugs – designed to protect against heart disease by lowering cholesterol – are killers, and accelerate cardiovascular problems, a damning new report has discovered.

The drugs harden the main arteries, they are a main cause of type 2 diabetes in healthy people, and they accelerate the major health problems in diabetics, say researchers from the Phoenix Veterans Affairs’ Healthcare System.  In short, the drugs help cause heart disease and death.

They monitored the health of 197 patients with type 2 diabetes and their use of statins.  Coronary artery hardening, or calcification, was far more accelerated in the patients who were regular statin users compared to those who took the drugs only occasionally.

Patients who weren’t initially taking a statin quickly developed aortic artery hardening once they started taking the drug regularly.

  1. Interesting ! I was prescribed statins a couple of years ago and took them for eight days before it occurred to me that the reason I couldn’t stand up straight or breathe without pain may not be ‘flu but the pills that were going to make me immortal .
    Reading this , I’m glad I stopped ..

  2. There is a very real and large train-wreak heading our way over statins at some point. We’ve been fed a pack of lies. The evidence for the entire lipid/heart theory is just not there.
