New Analysis Confirms Statins Are Colossal Waste of Cash

The lecturer within the featured video, Maryanne Demasi, Ph.D., produced the 2014 Australian Catalyst documentary, “Coronary heart of the Matter: Dietary Villains,” which uncovered the ldl cholesterol/saturated fats myths behind the statin fad and the monetary hyperlinks which lurk beneath.

The documentary was so thorough that vested pursuits really satisfied ABC TV to rescind the two-part collection.1 The Australian Coronary heart Basis, the three largest statin makers (Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Merck Sharp & Dohme) and Medicines Australia, Australia’s drug foyer group, complained2 and obtained the documentary expunged from ABC TV.

Ldl cholesterol and saturated fats have been the villains of coronary heart illness for the previous 4 many years, regardless of the various research displaying neither has an opposed impact on coronary heart well being.

The complete meals trade shifted away from saturated fats and ldl cholesterol, ostensibly to enhance public well being, and the medical trade has massively promoted the usage of cholesterol-lowering statin medication for a similar purpose. Regardless of all of that, the fee of coronary heart illness deaths continues to be excessive.3 That actually ought to inform us one thing.

The statin scam makes my blood boil. And now there's a genetic link, showing they can trigger ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease, in the susceptible.

But do they give you a genetic test before they hand over the prescription. NO!

I call that an unacceptable risk.

Unfortunately, the article is impossible to read in a coherent, meaningful way. It's been assembled by software clipping quotes and excerpts and ends up all over the map. I'd like to see the human written summaries of the findings referenced on August 4, 2020 to better understand what's going on. Also, the documentary produced in 2014, but squelched by Australia's ABC, sounds fascinating.

Back when I took statins, I never felt so sick in my life. Never again.

So sorry for the loss of your MIL Zei.

My doctor is constantly pushing statins....and I'm constantly refusing them.
I'm sure that in his chart somewhere I'm considered unruly...and doesn't take advise.
I don't care~I've read too many horror stories about them.

Our 5-page long discussion thread about the documentary from 2014 .. https://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=456227.

Although the video was squelched, there's still a pdf outline of the investigation as laid out in each episode of the documentary .. https://about.abc.net.au/wp-content...tion-Report.pdf

Thanks, doreen. This is interesting; although, I'd still love to see the full video. Discussion thread is informative and must have come right around the time I was starting to frequent this forum.
