Statin Drugs Are the Greatest Medical Fraud of All Time: Study Reports

Statins are one of the most dangerous drugs prescribed by doctors. The risks from them were obvious before they were ever  marketed. Nonetheless, they are among the best selling drugs of all time. Finally, genuine science has been looking at their adverse effects and lack of benefit to document the truth that was obvious from the beginning:

Statins are the greatest medical fraud ever perpetrated.
A new review of the science reports:

The statin industry, with all of its spin-off(s), is a 20-billion-a-year industry. We are observing the revealing of the utmost medical tragedy of all times. It is unprecedented that the healthcare industry has inadvertently induced life-threatening nutrient deficiency in millions of otherwise healthy people.[1]

The only point on which I can disagree is the statement that the travesty of statins was somehow “inadvertent”. There is, in fact, absolutely no excuse for it.
The authors of the study, Sherif Sultan and Niamh Hynes, have produced a paper that is utterly condemnatory of the use of statins. Not only do they condemn the drugs, they also condemn the pseudo science behind it. Though they don’t state it, and obviously could not take such a risk, there is simply no way around the fact that the science behind statins has been largely fraudulent, and that fraud has been perpetrated by Big Pharma.

The Adverse Effects of Statins

The authors found that, for every 10,000 individuals in good health who take statins:
  • 307 extra patients suffer from cataracts.
  • 23 additional patients develop acute kidney failure.
  • 74 extra patients develop liver dysfunction.
  • Statins increase muscle fatigue by 30% and cause an 11.3% incidence of rhabdomyolysis at high doses.
  • They also state, “What’s more, it induces inflammatory myopathy, including necrotizing autoimmune myopathy with immunosuppression and the statin-related myopathy can last for 12 months.”
They also point out that statins cause erectile dysfunction, and that young men suffer 10 times as much erectile dysfunction on low doses of statins. Beyond all these adverse effects:
  • According to the FDA’s adverse event reporting system, about 40 out of every 10,000 statin reports are for interstitial lung disease, which causes scarring in the lungs that is almost never reversible.
  • Statins cause hyperglycemia after eating in both diabetics and nondiabetics.
  • Statins “induce full blown type 2 diabetes in women.”
  • Statins increase the risk of developing HbA1c in people with and without diabetes. HbA1c is a condition that causes glucose to stick to hemoglobin, which is an indicator of greater harm from diabetes.
  • Statins prescribed to the elderly cause a 9% increase in diabetes.
  • Statins can cause insulin resistance.
  • A correlation between Parkinson’s disease and low cholesterol exists, which clearly implicates statins.
  • A correlation between statins and early-onset cataracts has been found. Statin users may be 50% more likely to develop cataracts early.
Here’s the most shocking health risk of statins:

[S]tatin use is associated with an increased prevalence and extent of coronary plaques calcification. Ironically for a drug which was marketed to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, the confirm registry identified a strong association of statin use to the progression of coronary artery plaque features.

This isn’t simply irony. Statins increase the harm that they are supposedly meant to decrease!

    When you go on Statins, you’re basically meant to be on them for life.

    I’ve suffered from high blood pressure and later in life I was diagnosed with high choloestoral and the need to go on Statins.

    I came off blood pressure tablets about 13 years ago (I’m 48). I just didn’t want to take them for the rest of my life, I thought I should sort the cause, not treat the symptoms. That meant eventually giving up a well paid but stressful job.

    I never went on the Statins, because my doctor basically said, they give your liver a kicking and as you already drink too much, I don’t want to put you on them just yet.

    I felt that even if I calmed my drinking, I didn’t want to be on a medication that gave my liver a kicking. So I decided to just try and reduce my choloestoral level.

    TBH, I don’t know how successful I’ve been, but I don’t want to take Statins, so I’ll live with the risk.
