Approximately one out of every five people are taking some form of anti-cholesterol drug (or statin). This is staggering. Once we rid ourselves of pre-conceived ideas fed to us by the media, and really look into this issue for ourselves, we learn that cholesterol is absolutely VITAL for good health. Anti-cholesterol drugs "statins", will harm ones health in dramatic ways.
Just recently, the farming newspaper my husband receives had a full page spread, educating the rural masses on the "dangers of cholesterol" and various way to reduce cholesterol. Of course this article ran the usual (bad) advice of avoiding butter, animal fats...etc. Then went on to advise having cholesterol levels checked at your doctors, and perhaps beginning statin "therapy". Ugh, of course the article was sponsored by Flora Pro-Activ!
We know first hand of loved ones whose health has dramatically declined since beginning statin treatment. Muscular pain, sleeplessness, brain confusion (fog) and forgetfulness are the symptoms that are most commonly described or noticed. Even though those on statins are certain that they are experiencing side-effects of these anti-cholesterol drugs, they are terrified to discontinue use, due to well chosen words from their doctors. It is heartbreaking to see a loved ones health declining due to a dangerous medication, prescribed by a "health professional". Check it out for yourself, and be forearmed before your doctor tries to spin the "your cholesterol is quite high, you really need to be on..." one on you!
